Approval - What is it? What does it mean to you? Do you strive to achieve it?
While many of us will say, no, I do not care if anyone approves of what I do, what I say, or how I look, we all know deep down inside we do. Saying and acting like you don't care is just a smoke screen that you use to hide your vulnerablities. At one point in your life you find yourself changing, hiding the querks, just to gain approval from friends, relatives or everyday people we encounter. But when do you realize that you have gone too far? That you are becoming a person that you truly are not?
“Lean too much on the approval of people, and it becomes a bed of thorns”
