Wise Words: Applaud Yourself

“The person who seeks all their applause from outside has their happiness in another’s keeping.” —Claudius Claudianus

Do you ever find yourself disappointed that one of your friends didn’t notice your new haircut or that few people congratulated you on your amazing solo in the choir? Stop seeking validation from others. If you think that you look fabulous or know that you did a killer job on that last project, so be it. You’re all that really matters anyway. (And believe me, others sometimes just don’t give praise where it’s due!) —Crystal Tate

  1. I squirm a bit reading this because I, too often, crave that applause and feel bereft when I don’t get it. This is such wise advice—I seek every day to follow it and I thank you for posting it.

  2. Beth, I too spent a long time wanting the approval of others, but thank God, I finally figured out that if He and I were OK, it didn’t matter what anyone else thought or did.
