Seeking Validation?

Published January 24, 2019 by Shay Taree

Now I decided to title this blog post as seeking validation because I realized that was what I was seeking when it came to Instagram. I was seeking to raise my Instagram followers to validate for myself that I was doing better than another individual. Who actually didn’t know we were in this insane competition. I would constantly check where their followers were and would hope that mine got higher than this individuals.

It wasn’t until speaking with my co-worker about one of her friends who is seeking the same thing that I realized what I was doing. I was able to look inside myself and ask myself what was I doing. I realized that I was being so stupid and those followers are just a number. Half of these people I don’t even know and probably will never talk to.

I realized that we all seek validation for different reasons but then I realized that that validation isn’t going to make anything better. We are going to continue to want more and more just to make ourselves feel better. We have to seek that validation through ourselves and not other people.

This is why I’m trying to do more self-love this year. This is why I’m trying to not use social media as much or take it as seriously. I’m trying to keep my focus on producing YouTube videos and helping others because I realize that those things make me happy. Those things make me feel good and the best thing is that I don’t want anything back.

So do you think that you seek validation? If so do you know why you seek it? Are you going to change that? Those are the questions you should ask yourself. If your someone who doesn’t seek validation then I can say I which I was like you and I want to know you secret haha.

But that’s my blog post for today. I hope y’all enjoy it and be sure to check out my social media handles and follow me if you like. Ironic I know haha. But I honestly I hope that y’all enjoy the day and be grateful for all that you have.

  • I think for me, I feel like I used to follow people online just because some of my online friends are following them. I think I just need to avoid following the crowd and be myself.
