Wisdom from Jean Adrienne

Many of us grow up with the concept that we need to prove something. The belief begins early in our lives. Baby Boomers adopted the notion upon starting school, but children today are indoctrinated as early as toddlerhood.

The need to prove worth is implied even before the child can talk clearly, and it expands as the child grows older. Therefore, the pressure on the modern teenager is incredible. No wonder the suicide rate of adolescents is so high.

The need to determine a person’s value is all an illusion. It saps your energy and steals your power. In truth, we have nothing to prove.

Justifying can surface in a number of ways. For instance, do you frequently find yourself caught up in the need to explain your position to someone else? That is a form of justification. Every time we feel we have to justify anything to anyone else, we are operating from a place of fear.

Taking responsibility for your creations is the first step in releasing this need to prove your worth. Worth is inherent. We are created in the image of God. We have nothing to prove. When you gain the capacity to understand your power to create your reality, the truth will emerge. If you don’t like what you see around you, change your thoughts! Continue reading at

I liked the bit about trying to justify yourself..

So with this 'new awareness' all of you have gained from this article,please do not try to 'GET ME',for therein is the proof that you all believe I need to explain,and justify my time with 'SUNNY'.
I need not defend myself against the brain washed accusations,and I suggest you people spend less time on my love life,or sex life,and concentrate on your own lives.Proof to yourself you don't have to degrade me to feel better about yourselves.
