We live in a world where our survival depends on how others perceive us. The reason why beauty care, fashionwear, or social media thrives.
The burden of validation impacts everyone. The person seeking validation and people in their circle.
Sometimes I wonder which came first our ego or the craving for validation. Or is anger or health issues part and parcel of this validation?
Has validation taken us, humans, beyond humanity and made us part of an endless reel where we are less real?
Do we crave validation to fulfill our inner void?
Do we crave validation because we are broken?
Do we crave validation because we are lost?
