It’s so easy to look to others for validation, instead of knowing for ourselves that we are valuable. However, we can’t learn to truly love ourselves by seeking approval from others. I know, because I’ve been there!
I used to always look to others as my source of validation–allowing them to determine whether I was (or wasn’t) valuable. This led to me having a love/hate relationship with myself. Depending on who I was around, I’d see myself in a totally different light than I did five minutes ago. There’s no question that’s unhealthy.
When we are seeking other’s validation–be it good or bad–we are giving them the power to tell us who we are.
In today’s video I’ll be addressing my experience seeking other’s for validation and how we can take our power back.
Now I’d love to hear from you.
Tell me a situation in which you’ve sought other people for validation. Share in the comments below.
