A product does not necessarily have to be approved, commended and patronized by outsiders or competitors before it can gain value and credibility.
Your personality, religion, ideology and practices do not necessarily have to be accepted and lauded by outsiders and serious critics before you can accept and value them.
Do not always totally rely on approvals, you might not always get people to confirm what you do.
Do not rely on flatteries to judge the authenticity of what you do, it might not present your true picture and worth.
Let the goodness, relevance and usefulness of your actions, not only the approvals and compliments of people, motivate you.
God bless you and have a blissful weekend.
Fr. Michael Amo Gyau
