Have you ever heard, or perhaps had someone say to you that you should just stop hiding away and start showing up?
How annoying can that be to hear, especially when you are aware of the judgements attached?
What if stopping hiding and showing up as more of you, wasn’t meant as an invalidation of everything that you have been and done so far in your life, yet more of an invitation to actually show up, even more so, as yourself?
How often do we not choose to show up because we are avoiding other people’s judgements, which actually have nothing to do with you and everything to do with what is going on for them.
Why validation isn’t as good as you think it is?
Validation is something that most of us have sought at some point in our lives, especially as children wanting to be acknowledged and recognised for doing something well.
How often do we actually carry that throughout our lives, whether in the workplace wanting to be told that we have done a great job or desiring validation from our partners within our relationships?
Quite often when we don’t receive the validation or the approval or recognition that we have been seeking, we can become frustrated or angry and feelings of resentment can begin to show up, creating disharmony for ourselves and in our lives.
