Coming home to your own truth

You have to start seeing yourself as your truthful friends see you.

As long as you remain blind to your own truth, you keep putting yourself down and referring to everyone else as better, holier, and more loved than you are. You look up to everyone in whom you see goodness, beauty, and love because you do not see any of these qualities in yourself. As a result, you begin leaning on others without realizing that you have everything you need to stand on your own feet.

Henri Nouwen, Inner Voice of Love
