How was I seeking validation for what’s already in existence?? Like.. I already said or did the thing. It’s real. What was I seeking?
Acceptance. Ahaa. I didn’t want to be rejected and berated. I was adapting myself in a way that eschewed conflict. I wasn’t realizing the bigger picture. I didn’t realize that some things were worth the hassle and fight. The truth. Wow. Sigh. I’m grateful.
I seek the truth in me and others because those are the signs of my Lord. Authenticity is the vanguard of the divine
