Looking for validation by being liked, or even being loved is not the route one should go. Life goes along a lot farther when you don’t care what people think of you. Don’t let these apps and most importantly yourself and the people you surround yourself think otherwise. Peace.
we don’t exist
While true that a person shouldn’t base their personal self-worth on the approval of others, the desire to be validated and accepted is human nature. There can be a healthy balance. As a personal example, I care what my friends think of me, because I use their approval of me as an indication that I am a decent human being. If suddenly my friends abandoned me, I’d have to think about what it was that I did to lose them and change. Additionally, the comments from strangers I receive give me a decent outsider’s perspective on how my behavior is being received. If enough people criticize or condemn me, it’s worth taking a look into.
People that want to shit on me for no reason and have unhelpful criticism? Pff. Fuck them.
Thanks for the reminder. Very true.
Hopefully this assits a couple of people out there. I can’t help anyone but I know this will vibe with some people and not others
The last sentence I agree with
I see this happening with certain creators as their following becomes bigger, but I’ll save that story for another day
