Ways To Validate Yourself
In the previous article, I talked at length about the importance of self validation. Now, I’ll be telling you some steps that will help you on the journey of self-validation.
Ask yourself the questions you want to ask others
Self reflection works like magic. Before you ask the opinions of your friends, colleagues or family, find out what you think. Weigh your thoughts and sift them where necessary.
Ask yourself, “What could this person tell me?”
Pay close attention to your feelings per time
Identify what feelings you are experiencing per time. Find out what your body or your mind needs. Addressing your needs helps you validate them.
Go easy on yourself

Self Validation is the most important validation.
Have at it!
