The Need for External Validation | Leverage Ambition

Advertisements

I always wanted the acceptance of my family. I always felt like I never fit in there or anywhere. As an adult, I understand that loneliness came from my childhood. I thought I was supposed to do everything on my own. Now I know I am not alone, and that it is okay to ask for help and it’s okay to not be perfect. I am thankful for my Higher Power and my co-creator. We all have them and we should put them to use. I thought I would pull together a set of quotes on needing approval or external validation from people, check it out below:

When your happiness is dependent upon what is happening outside of you, constantly you live as a slave to the external situation. Sadguru

Don’t seek their attention. Require their respect. It lasts longer and is a genuine reflection of how they feel about you.

Give yourself the validation you’ve been craving, you will no longer seek it from the world.

You have been criticizing yourself for years, and it hasn’t worked. Try approving of yourself and see what happens.

When we compare ourselves to others and seek external validation, we exist in a perpetual state of need.

When we approve of ourselves, rather than always seeking approval of others, we find happiness.

Finding oneself while seeking approval of others, means the murder of self.

People who want the most approval get the least and people who do not need approval are the happiest.

The only permission, the only validation, and the only opinion that matters in our quest for the greatest is our own.

If we are addicted to people’s approval, we will always experience pain when that approval is withdrawn–as it always is.

Some of us will make tiny ripples and others will send waves crashing but each one will change the surface of the water forever. Robin Dance

Where is God? Where can I find Him? we ask. We don’t realize that’s like a fish swimming frantically in the ocean in search of the ocean.

No aquarium, no tank in a marine land, however begin to duplicate the conditions of the sea.

Our task must be to free ourselves by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty. Albert Einstein

The quest for wholeness can never begin on the external level. It is always an inside job.

You’re dealing with the demon of external validation. You can’t beat external validation. You want to know why Because it feels soooo good. Barbara Hall

As we let go of all suppressed feelings our need for external validation disappears. We become more confident in ourselves and our abilities. We become unlimited.

Dear Validation, Freedom on the inside comes when validation from the outside doesn’t matter.

It’s tragic that we recognized our self worth from external validation. Aditya Ajmera

To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don’t need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself. Thich What Hanh

Do not take external validation as gospel truth, for none has ever understood you, better than you. Devesh Kakkar

Some teach you what can’t be taught, by turning their back on you and helping you get internally closer to everything you externally sought. Curtis Tyrone Jones

When you do not seek external approval, you are at your most powerful. Caroline Myss

The wounded woman afraid to speak her truth, lacks self worth, tolerates toxic people, seeks external validation, people pleases, apologies for who she is, has negative self talk, and compares herself to other women and sees them as competition. An awakened woman honors her truth, knows her worth, sets loving boundaries, feels validated from within, inspires others to shine, lives apologetically, speaks gently to herself, embodies her divine, goddess that encourages other women to rise with her.

If outside validation is your only source of nourishment you will hunger for the rest of your life.

I do not seek the approval of people who do not approve of me. Maria Koszler

Then you go ahead and cry, Will said. That ended my weeping had he asked me not to cry, I would not have been able to stop, but his permission somehow quit my tears.

How you treat yourself is how you treat God, cause you are the representative of God in your life. So when you are putting yourself last, you are putting God last.

The pursuit of knowledge, he maintained, was a worthy objective in its own right and needed no external validation.

In the desperate search for acceptance we rob ourselves of our own joy. It’s a path of destruction that leads nowhere.

A truly strong person does not need the approval of others any more than a lion needs the approval of sheep.

In the desperate search for acceptance, we rob ourselves of our own joy. It’s a path of destruction that leads nowhere.

Dear self, it’s a shame how hard you are on yourself. You treat others with more love than you treat you. You deserve to be celebrated too. Reyna Biddy

Self love is the ability to feel beautiful without needing someone to tell you.
