You’re allowed and you matter.

You don’t need anyone’s affection or approval in order to be good enough. When someone rejects or abandons or judges you, it isn’t actually about you. It’s about them and their own insecurities, limitations, and needs, and you don’t have to internalize that. Your worth isn’t contingent upon other people’s acceptance of you — it’s something inherent. You exist, and therefore, you matter. You’re allowed to voice your thoughts and feelings. You’re allowed to assert your needs and take up space. You’re allowed to hold onto the truth that who you are is exactly enough. And you’re allowed to remove anyone from your life who makes you feel otherwise.

  1. This post encouraged me so much today. This is one of my daily struggles, but after reading this post it’s not an issue anymore. Thank you Daniell.

    1. HI Mischette,
      Yes you can. Look under the quote (poster image), you will see some social icons. They are in order: a little F (in blue) for facebook
      A little bird (for twitter) – A red P for Pinterest – A red G+ for Google plus – A blue T for Tumblr – a little envelope for email option- and last there is a + sign that opens up another window for more options.

      If you click on the little blue F, a window should open up. You now have the option to forward that poster to your facebook wall or you can even send it to a friend’s wall. Look on top where it reads: “Share on timeline” click that!

      Hope this helps you!, Brigitte
