Fight Aproval Addiction, You Don't Have To Always Seek Aproval In Relationships

Fight Approval Addiction: Seeking the approval and acceptance of everyone is an impossible task and an emotionally draining endeavor. You deserve to be loved for who you truly are, and not what others expect you to be. Trying to be everything to everyone is the recipe for misery. Embrace your authentic self and proudly so. Be at home in your skin and fall deeply in love with the person in the mirror. Become the best version of the man or woman that God wants you to be. You would rather be an imperfect original than a perfect creation of someone else’s subjective opinion of you.

Only God’s opinion of you matters. “For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? Or am I trying to please man? If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant of Christ.” (Galatians 1:10) Yes, you may not be perfect in the eyes of men, but you have to keep reminding yourself that, “I praise you oh Lord for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.” (Psalm 139:14)

There should be some statement that doesn't say "for who you truly are". What if that person is a complete asshole? Do they deserve to be loved for being a straight jackass to everyone just because they are miserable? Should we really sit there and be on with someone being a complete ass to everyone in their life of that's who they truly are? 

This statement is extremely misleading and perpetuates individual empowerment to continue being the self destructive, home wrecking, morons. It really gets under my skin when I hear, "I am who I am. Don't like it, leave it. " and that person is one who does everything in their power to make everyone else miserable. Js, stop saying , "love for who you truly are". I'm sorry, but people who intentionally cause harm to others, whether emotional, mental, spiritually, or physical do not deserve the love I have to give.
