Validation is key…

Sometimes….no, most of the time, it is the little things that make the difference…that put the pep in your step…the song on your lips…and if truth be told…the joy in the doing…

We are strange creatures we humans…we say one thing…posture to another…state indifference…get hurt by the neglect…show attitude…often in spite of oneself…whereas all we really want is to feel heard…acknowledged…understood…appreciated. We need the expressions of acknowledgment and affirmation…as William James so rightly said…The deepest principle in human nature is the craving to be appreciated! This is how the Good Lord made us…but we go against our nature and forget that as another wise man said…the ultimate aim of the ego is not to see something…but to be something! Truly wise words…words to live by…for oneself and for others…

All relationships require this…we do however go to great lengths to hide this…show nonchalance…act and posture to the contrary…to no avail! Relationships require emotional validation…the skill of emotional validation is a vital one…one that needs to be nurtured and demonstrated. Validation is what helps people to share feelings…emotions and…themselves…it is not said without reason that…Feelings of worth can only flourish in an atmosphere of tolerance…open communication and…appreciation…

The readership on my last post and last week was the most ever since I have started writing…it makes my heart sing…I want to thank you all…God bless…

May you live every day of your life. Jonathan Swift.
