Releasing The Need For Approval - Wisdom Sticks

We are often trained in approval.

Get the approval, get the good report card, have people think highly of you, be seen as valuable in the eyes of others.

Why?

The Mirror Of Other People's Opinions

The Mirror Of Other People's Opinions

A common discomfort for people is caring too much what others think of them. Other people's opinions start to become a big deal. Here is a possible solution.

Don't Have An Ideal Self...

Don't Have An Ideal Self...

We can become so caught up with trying to be a certain way, to be better than we are, that we end up in constant conflict with ourselves, running away from who we are.

In a world that often seems to be telling you to be something else, it can be a liberation to no longer have an ideal self...

Don't Be Faithful To Suffering...

“We tend to give great value and importance to our painful emotions, we seem to give great belief and importance to what makes us suffer. We are somehow addicted to it.
