We live in very sad times where a person/peoples approval holds more weight than our actual conviction. Advancement in technology has not made approaching issues in regards to validation easy. Features like polls and comments, like and dislike buttons, ratings etc, end up influencing our earlier choices on what we want to do and how we need to do it.
Asides from polls, dating apps is another subtle means people feel the need to get validation, questions like “does someone like me enough, am I considered beautiful based on race, height, color of skin and the list continues. We tend to be stuck on the idea of how someone feels us. Validation is not always a bad idea when it is given or requested for the right reason.
However, lately I have began to ask myself after validation whats next, how much of someones affirmation goes into how your decisions are being made? please answer in the comment session.
