One thing you consciously need to guard against is the spirit of proving.
If you have to prove every time that you are good, you are worthy, you are smart, you are wise, you are strong, you are sweet then there is something going on on the inside you need to check.
Take the pressure off.
Don’t reduce your life to a public performance, you have to bid for ‘shows’, your abilities a rendition you offer to an audience for a token.
A token of accolade, a token of applause, a token of praise.
You are good.
The people that matters knows and that is enough.
Don’t get caught up in the pettiness of proving.
It drains and takes more from you than you are willing to give.
