Inny or Outy?

I’ve lived my whole life concerned about what others think of me.
          I care too much what others think!
Inny or Outy;
          Internally directed or outwardly led?
Do I live outwardly, hungry for approval or inwardly, approving of myself?
          Inny or Outy, what shall it be?
Will they like this poem?
          Do I like this poem? is a better question. 
I DON’T CARE WHAT OTHERS THINK,  I yell vehemently!
          Yet, I do.
Less and less, though.
          Less and less.

One thought on “Inny or Outy?

  1. Love it! Often times if we celebrate ourselves. It seems like we are boasting. I ask the Lord to help me to be less concerned with what the world thinks of me and more on what HE thinks & desires for me. Work in progress.
