Be authentic to yourself.

In today’s society so many people are chasing after the affirmation and attention of complete strangers. They are doing whatever is possible to garner likes, followers and approval. Their mood, their self esteem depends on this attention. They try to mold themselves into what they believe others want them to be, they are so afraid to be themselves in fear of rejection. They have become prisoners to keeping up with this fake persona they created. Why be a prisoner to the worlds expectations, free your self, take those shackles off. Be who you want to be and live your most authentic life.

  1. The issue with external validation, among other things, is that not everyone will validate you. People are mean, especially over the internet. If a person relies on external validation and they receive negative feedback, what does that do to their self esteem? Nothing positive, that’s for sure.
