I’m a words girl. I love to read, write down my heart and love to hear encouraging words.
Maybe a little too much.
I want to hear I am doing a good job. That I’m
meeting exceeding people’s expectations.
I want to hear that I am “rockin’ it” in everything I do.
I’m not saying this is right….it’s what I struggle with.
I look to others to give me validation.
I want to know what I am working so hard on, how I encourage you, etc. is making a difference in your life.
This is wrong.
The place where this ugliness rears it’s head the most? In my marriage. It’s not my huband’s job to give me my self worth.
It’s not your job either.
God gives life. God’s word gives me my worth. Now if only I truly lived that way.
Do you struggle with this at times?
After I wrote this post a friend I met in Spain years ago sent me such an encouraging email. I really loved getting it and hearing from her. Her kindness lifted my spirits. I’m not saying it’s bad to enjoy positive words, it just shouldn’t be where we find our significance.
Thanks friends for your kindness to me as I write my run on sentences and take my poor pictures.
