Do you really need approval?
Do you need approval to be you?
All too often we seek approval from others when we don't need to.
Too often we allow others to determine what we do and why we do something.
That will never lead to true happiness.
We need to be ourselves.
We need to do those things we believe we can do it and do them well.
Just "fitting in" and accepting what someone else decides we can or can not do, will not lead to our happiness.
And who knows, YOU could be the next Einstein, Newton, Mozart, da Vinci, Reagan, Galileo, or Franklin or ??? if you believe in what YOU can do without seeking approval.
