Emotion and MindYou don't need the approval of others to be happy

You don’t need the approval of others to be happy

Many of us think that we need the opinion and approval of others to do things, and above all to be happy. However, if you move away from this thought, you will achieve everything you set your mind to.

As Plato said: “The human is a social being by nature.” It is impossible to conceive of today’s society without mutual support between the different people on this planet.  However, we have reached a point where we often need the approval of others too much to achieve happiness.

What is useful in this? Is it really necessary for all of our friends and family to tell us how we should carry out our actions in order to achieve the best of results in our life? Well, as always, it all depends on the situation in which we find ourselves.

We must make mistakes to improve as people

Throughout our childhood, we always lived under the protection of our parents. These are the people who will love us the most from the moment we are born. Hence, it is very important to follow their wise advice. And it is that ultimately they are people with much more filming and who have learned all kinds of lessons throughout their long years. They have lived through all kinds of adverse situations with which they have learned to cope.  And that is why it is very important to follow their instructions, which only come from the love and affection that they process us.

However, once we have grown up and are reaching a certain age, it is important to learn from our own mistakes. We cannot always live in a protective bubble where nothing and no one can harm us. There will be a time when we will have to learn to walk alone. To make our own decisions. And above all to make mistakes. We have to turn mistakes into opportunities. In new tests to improve with the future and become better people.

Once we have clearer in our life what we want to be. It is very important to set yourself certain short-term goals. These will give us much more confidence and self-esteem to continue to surpass ourselves and therefore be much more ambitious.

There are people who just want to see us fail

However, surely along this arduous path there will be people who try to prevent these dreams from coming true. But don’t listen to them. Don’t pay any attention to them because they really don’t deserve it.

These types of people just want to see others fail. They are selfish beings who have seen how they have failed both personally and professionally. And therefore they cannot bear that the people around them succeed. In short, they are toxic people who want to see how others fall in order to feel better about themselves. In this way they show that their life is empty and that they are of no interest.

This is where we must stay strong. If you really have a dream, you should go for it from minute one. If you really want to reach that goal that will make you happy, it is of the utmost importance that you put all your efforts into achieving it. Nothing and no one should tell you that you should not do it. Remember that you are the only ones who have the right to set your own limits.

With this we do not say that it does not hurt to take advantage of the advice of third parties if we deem it necessary. Experience is one more degree and therefore it can help us to always go on the right path. Especially those mature people who know more about life than we do.

However, when push comes to shove, when it comes to taking action, you will be completely alone in the face of fate. And that is where you will have to make a decision. It doesn’t matter which one you choose. Because whether you fail or not, life will give you a chance again sooner than you imagine.
