“During my teenage years I struggled with identity, like many others. I found myself turning to acceptance from peers as a source of happiness. My joy fluctuated according to how others treated me and, of course, was often left low. I felt I had to act and behave in a certain way that I didn’t want to so others would like me.
When I look back, I can now see how God reached out to me. I now know I already have acceptance from the only one I need. My happiness is no longer dependent on what others think of me, because God is constant and no matter how little I see myself, there is nothing I can do that will cause him to stop loving me.”
