    Embracing Validation

    Embracing Validation

    Rooted Conversation: We talk about external validation and its importance and some of its red flags. Overall, we all desire the approval and acknowledgement of others and that is called validation. No need to be ashamed of it. We can embrace it and have a healthy relationship with this simple human desire.
