[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] Are you addicted to external validation?

Recognize your role in creating the reality of your life.....your life
reflects back to you the state of being you are in right now...you are
responsible for your life, it's not happening willy nilly...Oprah Winfrey

Brutally honest, some of us are addicted to external validation, being
right about everything, to having things our own way so that we can feel
safe.

To say whatever you want to whomever you want without any regard for the
necessity or appropriateness of our speaking! To be seen and heard at the
same time!

Addicted to being unacceptable and guilty and you don't even know it!

It is easy to point out in others the things we deny, dismiss, avoid,
excuse , resist acknowledging that we actually believe are true about us

Ask -What do I need? What's in my way? What needs to go?

Then go do it! No excuses, no procrastination!

Peace!
