The poem by Isabelle Sorrells
We all want people to recognize the strength of women.
But it’s gone so far as we need them to recognize it, because if they don’t, somehow, we aren’t.
Or at least, that’s what has become of us.
We have fooled ourselves into thinking if the world sees us for the “strong women” that we are, that will be enough.
As if that ever mattered.
Why has the foundation of our self-esteem become based on the recognition, validation, and submission from others?
I am a child of God; I don’t need the world to tell me who I am.
He loves me more than anyone else ever could.
Because of Him I know my worth.
I don’t need the world’s approval.
God is enough for me.
