I was listening to a podcast by Steven Furtick and one of the things really stuck: 'If you live off the affirmation of others, you will die from the absence of the same'
We are called to build each other up but we cannot live off this. I cannot tell how many times I have placed unrealistic weights on others and myself in this regard. There is not one perfect one among us that can meet all our needs. We are meant to live Acts 17. 28 'For in Him we live and move and have our being'
