Validation Through Social Media

I thought this video was interesting. I know a lot of people who really do feel like their validation comes from how many views and likes. Self-worth/image/confidence/significance does not come from how many likes you get. I also know people who feel like their worth is dependent on all of the compliments from people whether in person or via social media.

Yes, in this time in life social media is a big thing. And, yes there has been times where I get bummed that people haven’t made an outright expression of recognizing my attention by liking or commenting but I’ve learned that knowing your worth is important. It needs to come from a source that is more than likes on Instagram or Facebook. Your validation is a balance of what you know about you, how you treat and respect yourself. How others treat and respect you. And yea maybe sharing the honest love you have for yourself via social media.
