People who don’t know themselves will always seek validation from outside sources (like you). Beware of these people. I just think it’s funny how folks will cut the genuine people out of their life and hang onto the fake ones. Sometimes, people don’t even realize that they are seeking acceptance from others until it is pointed out to them. They may be so used to it that it just becomes part of their personality. Try not to take it personally if you lose a friend, only for them to keep other people in their company who you know aren’t genuine. Just pray for them. When you know yourself, you know that whatever you may be seeking, is already inside of you. You do not need anything outside of your authentic self to validate you. If you have genuine people in your life, KEEP THEM AROUND. When you know something is real, you don’t have to question it’s authenticity. You just know.
