What is it about our need for affirmation, acceptance, approval? I started this blog just to focus myself and be more positive.
Yet, once I started getting followers and likes and comments, that seems to be what drives me now. I hear the same thing from other people too. We all seem to be seeking external approval.
I’m not saying it is bad…or good. I’m just observing that it is always there.
I find myself writing with that in mind more than just the free flow of thoughts.
I think that maybe this just shows, in a small way, that we are not created to be solitary beings. We are better people when we are interacting. It shouldn’t change our true selves. But other people should enhance us. Two is better than one. Wasn’t there a song like that?
