Validation

Something I have always sought.  I realise now I lost a lot of time worrying what people thought, and hoping they would be pleased with me.

§

I wanted therapists to be proud of me, and any progress I had made.

I wanted teachers to be pleased with my work.

§

I lost time and energy over this.

The truth is it is almost impossible to please anyone, at least beyond the short term.

People are more likely to complain and criticise because that is human nature.

§

Seeking validation is something I have done, but I feel I should be more relaxed around people from this day forward.
