"Seeking others approval"

 How often do we seek others approval? We work the hardest we can, pray the longest we can pray, try the hardest we can try, only for that person or people to not accept us or appreciate the things we do.
The job is either given to the next person who didn't work as hard as you. The guy goes for the girl who looks bigger, taller or shorter than you. What then do you do next?

Ladies, at this point we have to realise we can't keep trying to seek men's approval because men (people) are indecisive. One day they are up and the next day they are down. One day they may like you & promise you the world, the next day they can dislike you & all promises once made doesn't exist any more.

But for me personally, the only person I have daily learnt to lean on is Jesus Christ. He is unshakeable, unmovable and unconditional. This isn't some religious talk, it's truth from the heart talk. Let's face the facts, at least I know when He promises you something He means it. There is no need to seek approval from Him as He already approves of you; 'Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ...(Ephesians 1:4)  meaning tick (yes), tick (yes please), tick (yes you are loved my child) :)
   I believe it's more hard work trying to fit into someone's world, type, view, friends or even family if you try to be anything else but yourself.
Learn to be yourself in every situation you are given, allow people to see and embrace the REAL you. After all the right people will accept you not approve you, as you have nothing to prove to them but offer them, this can be in form of your skills/talents, your words/attitude or even just your presence.

God's grace is so sufficient for you, He allows you to learn each and every day from what we choose to do with this life we live and is given.
From now on, let's seek less 'men's' approval and be more Godly focused.

'Obviously,  I'm not trying to win the approval of people, but of God. If pleasing people were my goal, I would not be Christ's servant' (Galatians 1:10)

Therefore, its not about breaking your back to get ahead of someone or having sleepless nights worrying about what you may have said or done or if you could or should have changed something. Rather, in all that you do, naturally do your best. Once you have done so, walk away in peace knowing you did well. It's up to the person or people to see your potential. If they don't, then its their lost.

Remember you want Genuine Relationships not fake ones.

Keep Being Beautiful
