Whether we like to admit it or not, we all do things to feel validated. You might post that great new pic online everyday to get likes and comments because without them you feel worthless. You might always have to tell everyone about your great new car, boat, exotic vacation, new fancy restaurant you were at or whatever it is at the moment that you feel the need to share, to make yourself feel good. Regardless of what it is that you may have to do to feel validated by the people around, you will continue to do it without realizing why you are doing it. Validation is the need to feel accepted by those around you. Most often we seek validation from others when really we are seeking validation internally. We are constantly asking the question, "Am I good enough?". Rather than seek validation within others, start searching within yourself to find what it is that will make you feel enough. Feeling enough can only happen when you let go of external validation, release superficial needs and realizing that you already had enough all along. Stay humble and just accept your true self, by doing so you will feel all the validation you need.
