I read an article the other day that said, "The unhappiest people in this world are the people who care the most about what everyone else thinks." Are you trying to please others so much that you lose your sense of direction along the way? Seeking approval of others is fine up to a point until you begin to compromise your health and happiness. You worry so much about what others think that you cannot breathe. Maybe you are terrified to step outside of the box in fear of going against the norm. It's time to stop feeling insecure. The constant thought of seeking approval forces us to miss out on the beauty of simply being ourselves.
