I do not dance to seek the praise of others. I seek to find the power within me.
I am not focused on the validation of others when I dance. Their opinion of me does not affect my intrinsic worth. I do not make decisions in life based on others thinking well of me. I base my decisions on the kind of person I want to be and having personal integrity. What matters when I dance is that I can respect myself, the work that I put in, and what I feel in my heart.
