Need For Approval

Need For Approval

A man cannot be comfortable without his own approval.
- Mark Twain

Do not look for approval except for the consciousness of doing your best.
- Andrew Carnegie

While it is natural to feel some degree of need for the approval of others, be careful. If you find yourself unwilling to take actions that others disapprove of, you have lost control of your own life and have given your destiny to others. An excessive need-for-approval is a sign of low self-esteem, and in severe cases, a condition termed Co-dependency.

Take charge of your life! You are responsible to yourself - not to others.
