It’s taught when we’re younger to seek approval from parents or those in charge. Some of us have the tendency to carry that same mindset into adulthood with peers. Some of us fear judgement, rejection, disapproval from people whose opinions don’t matter or wish they had the courage to do the same. Seek your own approval and let that be the validation that you’re headed in the right direction. Have confidence in you. Don’t mistake the opinions of others for your own. Believe in yourself!
