You don't need
higher self-esteem.
You need
greater self-grace.

~ Ann Voskamp


The world tells us that we just need more self-esteem to take on all the challenges in front of us. You know what I'm saying? Just find more security in yourself and then you will have the strength to take on what is in front of you.  But if this concept is true, than turning towards grace is what we need, not more self reliance - right?
