Episode 71: External Validation
If you notice that you really need external validation to make decisions, to feel like what you have done matters, this episode will help.
First – nothing has gone wrong! Seeking approval and affirmation and recognition is an entirely human tendency and it helps us feel connected to other people. This only becomes problematic when we feel dependent on the blessing of other people to do anything.
In this episode I share why some of us have a hunger for validation from other people, what we are really doing when we seek external validation, plus: three really simple practices to help you begin to validate yourself that will dramatically grow your self-trust.
