Why do we look to others to validate ourselves? Or better yet…why do we let the actions of others have a profound effect on how we view ourselves?
I have been asking myself that for years and man oh man…I am not sure I want the answer..
Last night at the gym there was a couple there that the wife was very cautious about being skin close to her husband and making sure everyone there knew he was hers….well bless her heart..nobody I mean NOBODY was looking at them anyway, but she was sure that one of the hot, stinky, sweaty women was going to jump off of a treadmill and steal her man in the middle of the gym…..really old girl…
I looked at them both and chuckled to myself…wow..hope I never acted like that, because if I did I need to go home and apologize to the Hubs..
At what stage in life do we stop being concerned about how others view us and work on how we view ourselves (our opinion is the only one that matters anyway)?
Food for thought..
