SEEKING APPROVAL? HERE'S SOMETHING YOU NEED TO KNOW
Hey, how's it going? Today, I want to chat about something that affects all of us at some point: the quest for approval. Yeah, we've all been there, craving that nod, that virtual or real-life "like." But have you ever stopped to think about what that's really all about?
We live in an era where external validation seems more accessible than ever. A "like" here, a heart emoji there, and voilà, you feel like you're on top of the world. But what if I told you that's not the approval you actually need?
[b]Here's the kicker:c "If you seek everyone's approval, you'll never find your own." Yep, you read that right. When you're constantly looking for validation from others, you get lost in the noise. You become a social chameleon, changing your colors to fit into whatever situation you find yourself in. But what about what YOU think? What about how YOU feel? What about YOU?
The truth is, the only approval that truly matters at the end of the day is your own. Don't get me wrong, it's great to have the support of your friends, family, and followers. But if you're not happy with yourself, if you don't approve of your own actions, decisions, and thoughts, then no amount of "likes" will fill that void.
So how can you start finding your own approval? Here are some ideas:
Self-Assessment: Take a moment to reflect on your actions and decisions. Are you doing things because you genuinely want to, or because you want others to see you doing them?
Set Your Own Standards: Don't let society dictate what's right or wrong for you. You have your own beliefs and values; use them as your compass.
Be Authentic: There's nothing more liberating than being yourself. You don't have to pretend to be someone you're not just to fit in.
Celebrate Your Achievements: No matter how small, every step forward is a step toward self-realization and self-approval.
So the next time you find yourself seeking everyone else's approval, remember that the only approval you really need is your own. And trust me, once you find it, everything else will fall into place.
Share this if it resonated with you. Sometimes, a little reminder is all we need to get back on the right track. And who knows, you might help someone else find their own approval too.
For you, standing at life's crossroads, looking for signs and answers in the eyes and words of others. This quote is a reminder that the only approval that truly matters is the one that comes from within you. Don't get lost in the world's noise; listen to the melody of your own voice. May this quote inspire you to seek and find your own approval, because at the end of the day, you're the one who has to live with your decisions: "If you seek everyone's approval, you'll never find your own." © Shoshan
