Do we really need validation from others about what we do or accomplish? The way to find out is to ask ourselves, would we still work as hard and seek to achieve our goals if we never told another person about them.
When and if we do seek validation from other people, why would we care about anyone that doesn’t have the same values, or someone that we don’t respect or care about?
There’s something refreshing about others that don’t care about needing approval from others.
Let us not apologize or justify why we need approval for the things we want today.
