Why do we crave validation from people we do not know and become so upset when they do not provide it?
With endless postings of selfies and tweets that include such banality we constantly demand other people’s attention. But when it isn’t forthcoming we become agitated and somehow our sense of self worth declines. The fact we do not get 10,000 likes of have 100,000 followers seems to devalue us , even though our contribution to the world may be great.
Maybe we’re searching out from sort of validation that we are important in this universe even though we are just one of seven billion souls and each as meaningless and meaningful as one another.
