Their validation for your actions?
You don’t need it.
So often we look to other people’s approval to make the hard choices.
Should you say goodbye to a toxic relationship; should you take the leap in your career; should you start something new; should you celebrate your accomplishments; should you be bold and say what no one else is saying?
You wait for someone else to tell you that you are good enough, strong enough, wise enough, or worth it to take action.
You don’t need to tiptoe around your truth.
You don’t need to wait for someone to tell you it’s okay.
And now, it’s not because you don’t need support, you do.
But it’s because change is scary.
There are always risks in change and the people closest to you see that. They don’t want you to be uncomfortable and go through something hard. It’s easier for everyone if you play it comfortable, even if it’s sucking the life out of you not to try. So it would only be natural for those closest to you like your family and best friends to feel uneasy when you are making shifts and big move.
Only you can fully give yourself that yes.
Knowing it’ll be difficult, but worth it.
Stop asking, stop tiptoeing, and get to dancing with change.
