Our Article Of The Month: Why Taking A Compliment = Being Mindfully Self-Appreciative . . .

Self-appreciation is essential to our having a healthy holistic, balanced and contented lifestyle. It’s also another form of self-validation.

When we mindfully and naturally validate ourselves, we don’t fruitlessly look for appreciation and validation from other folk, who really can’t give us this, nor any real or lasting sense of self-worth anyway.

While it’s really unfortunate that as wimmin we’re often socialized into looking outside ourselves for it; It’s simply not possible for us to receive the external validation we might [unrealistically] crave from others.

Ironically, validation from others can only have real meaning when we are able to do it for ourselves first.
