Validation is something we all crave.  Unfortunately it is not something that we get enough of.

I have found that if you enjoy what you are doing and it makes you happy that can be validation enough.  It is still great to be given praise for the things you do or have someone validate your choice.

Find ways to validate what you do so that you don't need the outside validation since you can't count on someone else validating you or your choices.

You have to do what you do because you know it is right for you, not for anyone else.


  1. It is so hard to be happy with yourself. it is a constant battle for me.

  2. So true! Something being worthwile for ourselves should be validation enough. We don't need someone else's approval if we already know, ourselves, that something is important.

  3. Very true. I think that the more a person does what they're supposed to do, the more they will be fulfilled and the less they will need validation from others. Outside praise is a plus, but they will feel validated with or without it.
