If you need or seek validation from another you are handing your happiness over…

If you need or seek validation from another you are handing your happiness over… you have given your power away. Often we do this unconsciously; rely on others to confirm or validate our identity, success, even our happiness. Our society is full of “goals” or “expectations” we are meant and supposed to meet to conform. We are raised to achieve these things, so others will deem us worthy, acceptable, accomplished or successful. Then we “fit” in. However, what we lose in this is ourselves. We lose our inner alignment in self satisfaction. We never learn to satisfy our own internal desires or follow our own fruition. Nor do we learn to fulfill ourselves… We become dependent on everything outside of us, a cog in the wheel… average. © Jodi Healy
