The need of approval

The need of approval

Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat. These are only a few social networks and apps you most likely use. Chances are that you check facebook daily, maybe even every few hours. The question is: why? Do you need it? Do you even like using this network? Most of facebook users just scroll through their news feed just for the sake of it. Open facebook, scroll, scroll, like a picture of a “friend” you honestly don’t care about, scroll some more. Rinse and repeat.

Maybe you are an active user and upload pictures to the internet on a regular basis. Why do you do this? To share your experiences? Or maybe you’re just storing these photos so you can easily access them later? Than why you care if people like your picture or not? Just think about it. Do you check your newly uploaded picture if it got more likes and comments? If yes, why? Have you ever asked someone why didn’t they like your new post? I was asked that question quite a bit. Most likely you’re doing all these thing because you’re seeking other people approval without even realising it.

I am not judging you by any means. I am just trying to make you think for a while. Why do we care what other people think about us? It doesn’t matter what some bimbo on facebook think of you. It doesn’t matter what your friends think. The only opinion that matters is yours. But do you even have one? Do you make decisions, or do you wait for someone else to do it for you?

If you didn’t like what i have to say, good. That means i’m right. Maybe you’ll think about it and understand that you don’t need to be like everyone else. Maybe you’ll come to a realisation that other people opinions don’t matter. And maybe, just maybe you will start to think for yourself and make decisions without external influence.
