"And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God."(Romans 12:2)
Don't allow your image of yourself be shaped by others. We need to allow God to shape us so that we become a product of "Divine Design". We must pursue His approval and by doing so, the disapproval of others won't have a negative impact on our lives. We are transformed by changing the way we think and as we are being transformed the Will of God will become clear to us. Follow Him, not them!!
