It’s habit for us to seek validation.
But, how much sense does it make for us to know who we are based on what other people say?
Especially if the below is true:
You can never please everyone.
The affirmation you seek will never be filled by the praise of people.
People will never affirm you as much as you desire.
Brené Brown, author of Daring Greatly, says that engaging in the world from a place of worthiness is key to living a happy life.
You must know you are worthy, regardless of the praise of others.
