#WednesdayWisdom - Self Validation
Validation helps us feel less crazy. It helps process our experiences better. When we can’t get them from family and friends we go downs paths seeking others for validation. Sometimes those paths lead us to those who manipulate or dismiss our experiences. This is where our self validation has to be stronger than our desire to be externally validated; in return we protect our experiences and our triumphs from those who mishandle us. This practice opens up frees up our minds to cultivate healthier connections.
