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.
“They won’t let me…”
“I don’t have the time…”
“I have so many other things to do right now…”
“I don’t have the money yet…”
“I’m not at my ideal weight…”
“I’m not quite confident enough…”
“I’ll just watch one more episode of Game of Thrones first…”
Does this sound like something you’ve ever done or thought to yourself?..
