Needing Approval from Others!

Still content with myself! Still eating organic and exercising. Started school last week and enjoying my two classes Anthropology lab and Intro to Human Aging.

No big plans for the month of September only to continue on with what is important and enjoy life.

Last week a friend ask me how she could get to my place of "contentment". I explained to her that contentment comes from your soul and not from outside sources. She admitted how she need others to acknowledge her and her accomplishments (weight, grades, work, etc.) to feel good about herself. I told her that acknowledgments from others will fade over time so she need to go within and learn to love and acknowledge herself. I told to her to seek therapy if she cannot find it within herself. Update soon!

To all have a wonderful week!


  1. That is so true! We have to be able to believe in ourselves. I try to find approval from others a lot too- but am starting to realize that I need to be happy with myself.

  2. I wish more people could be happy with themselves and not seek "approval or recognition" from others in order to think they are doing good. Hopefully, your friend will get there soon. Enjoy your classes!

  3. Wow I can't believe your friend even admitted something like that! I could not imagine living like that. You were right to tell her to seek therapy. Why seek someone elses approval especially when there are so many unhappy people who don't like to see anyone else happy or successful. Poor thing. Therapy and prayer.

  4. Glad to hear you're doing so well! :)
