How To Stop Seeking Approval From People
Hey guys, what’s good.
Unfortunately, approval seeking will get you nowhere in life, Fast!
There are a few easy things you can do right now to stop seeking others approval.
For starters ask yourself what the worst negative consequence of others not approving of your actions is. Is it a frown or scowl directed your way? A bruised ego?
Lives worth living are full of leaving the comfort zone so your just going to have to stop crying and be a man about it.
The things you really want to do, the things you say, the way you behave, without self censorship is really who YOU are.
Do you need those people in your life?
Of course not, there are millions of people who will not disrespect your essence by disapproving of the things you like to do.
If the people disapproving are your family, this is the one exception,
Respectfully inform your family that this is who you are and in order to live a life without regret you must stay true to yourself .
That is all you need to say.
If your family still tries to send negative energy your way you will have to spend less time around them until they accept you.
When you internalize this belief that “The things I want, the things I like, are who I am”
You will naturally care less and less about people judging you or thinking you are stupid.
Want to walk around town recording yourself with a selfie stick? Want to drop out of college? Want to dedicate a good chunk of your life to bodybuilding? Want to hit on a random girl in front of a crowd of people and risk embarrassment.
Yes, I fucking do.
And if you have a problem with it. You have a problem with me mother fucker and I don’t like you either.
You say, “This is what I do. This is me. Love it or hate it.”
Do what you want
Approval is overrated
