To Be Loved...

Pete Wilson is a pastor in Nashville, a husband and a father.

And a very honest blogger.

If you've ever wrestled with the debilitating desire to be loved, to be accepted at any cost, to find your value in others' opinions (hey - I KNOW who you are!), you will be encouraged and perhaps challenged by this post.  Here's just a snippet of Pete's honest confession of his struggle:

I would ignore the sincere compliments of others to be obsessed with the few critics.
I would abandon my boundaries and go above and beyond to "help" someone while ignoring my family. (ouch!)
I would put off the tough leadership decisions trying to keep all sides content.

You're welcome.
