recognition or affirmation that a person or their feelings or opinions are valid or worthwhile.“they have exaggerated needs for acceptance and validation”Do you need validation?I am here to tell you the answer. The answer is NO. You do not NEED validation. You WANT it, but you do not NEED it. Here is why. You already are equipped deep down inside with everything you need. You are already perfectly imperfect. You are already you. So you that the only thing you need is YOU. All of the accolades, the pats on the back sure feel amazing, I know they do. But, will you perish without them? NO. Therefore, they are not a need. They are a want.Today, outside of you is trying to tell you that you need it. T.V, Movies, Books, Magazines, Facebook, Instagram etc. etc. is all trying to get you to feel like you need something to feel validated. Guess what? They are all trying to sell you something. Something that you don’t need. You need water, food, shelter, sunshine on your face. You do not need “Likes” you do not need “Loves” you do not need $100 face cream to feel validated.What do you need? You need to come home. You need to sit still, alone, and be quiet. You need to listen to your own inner wisdom. Your own inner light, teacher, GOD, GODDESS or whatever you want to call it. That inner light, is you. The longer you listen to what it has to say, the more you will understand that it is all you need. You are good enough. You are smart enough, and gosh darn it, people like you.
