Some people need proof before they believe anything or anyone.

Suppose one believes they have a new idea or invention that will change the world. Or that animals talk to them. Or anything else that might be beyond another’s personal reality.

Is casting doubt necessary? Do all beliefs need to based in hard realities — our own or another’s? And if proof was necessary, what would that look like? Like how could someone prove that animals talk? Maybe they do, but they don’t like the attitude of the person demanding proof, so they refuse to comply.

The point is: You don’t have to prove your belief in yourself or your capabilities to anyone. If you believe something—that’s good enough. Just keep doing you. Trying to prove a point wastes a lot of valuable breaths. People only listen when they’re ready, no matter how the evidence stacks up.

We are each vastly unique. While we may find commonalities with others, we’re completely different from our friends, parents, siblings, other relatives and acquaintances. With our differences, we are each entitled to maintain our private beliefs that are not hurtful to others, without worrying about conforming, unless of course that’s what we decide to do.

We don’t have to prove ourselves to anyone. Opinions of others, altering ourselves to comply, trying to fit in boxes that are constricting…no. Those are all attempts to prove our worth. Be you. You are worthy as is. Be honest with who you are. No proving is necessary. Just believe that you are working everyday to be the best you can be.
