You wonder :: Why do I feel like I need constant validation?
It is difficult to admit that you low key ‘require’ constant validation from others, but that is where you are.
You are in the right place.
You can’t change what you don’t acknowledge.
So go ahead, you can admit it, you don’t even have to nod your head.
Here is how you know this just isn’t working for you::
You often find yourself being mad or upset with the person whom you asked their opinion.
It didn’t match your opinion. Especially if (read: when) they don’t say it right to your ears.
You have to continually ask again and again like it’s the Ground Hog’s Day movie.
This is your life begging you to develop or deepen your own inner knowing aka intuition.
If you are needing constant validation from others in order to prove your worthiness…then you will always be disappointed.
Outside validation is temporary and you gotta jump through too many hoops in order to gain or keep attention.
The bottom line is people are flaky and fleeting as they should be. They are here on the planet to seek their own destiny. The same as you.
No one is wrong here.
The beautiful thing is you get to lean on your inner compass.
Come what may you, when you rely on your own validation, you ARE the check and the balance.
Here’s the thing, you won’t always get it right. But, what you will have is a sense of inner trust that you didn’t realize you had or that you needed.
The culprit of needing constant validation from others…is the idea that you can get it ‘wrong’. It is just feedback…
Decide to feel good from the inside OUT. Think about what is going to make you feel your absolute best in everything that you do, so that you have no regrets.
