Our innate nature is to be happy, to spread joy. We want to do things we believe will make others happy. This becomes a challenge when we habitually seek approval from others. Our essential self gets buried in the need for approval. Living life to please someone else is a full time and exhausting job. Perhaps the other person doesn’t want or know how to give out approval. To learn that the ultimate approval comes from within is a valuable lesson. It is the strongest way to maintain selfesteem, selfconfidence and grow as the magnificent person you were destined to be.
