Whether we like it or not, we have to seek someone’s approval in many things that we do. Family, work, friends, other relationships. At work, if the boss doesn’t approve of our finished task, there’s a need to either repeat it or worse, lose your position.
With our family, if they don’t approve of our decisions there will be some issues to handle. The same goes with our friends, boyfriend or girlfriend. Society dictates some norms and if we don’t conform to these, we are branded differently.
Would you believe that even before we were born, there is someone who has approved of our being? Yes, there is – God. He gave us physical attributes – let us see the beauty in ourselves internally and see the beauty of the character of others.
He gave us gifts, talents, abilities – let us use them positively and let us try to share them with others. Our life has a purpose – may we all try to see what we live for, whom we live for and how we live. It is human nature to seek happiness but let us try to be happy without being the cause of someone else’s sadness or grief. God bless.
