As a child, we look to our parents for reassurance. A simple nod or indication that we are on the right path.
If we are lucky, they will say that we did well and they are proud of us.
However, “experts” say if raised “correctly” by instilling internal drive, children won’t need a carrot to work towards their goals. That a healthy child-parent relationship means that the child does not need the parent’s approval.
Perhaps as adults, we don’t need approval but the reassurance from our parents is never unwelcome. We are all children seeking our way home. A simple nod or indication that we are on the right path would be that little something extra that ushers us along our path.
And absent of that, a community of like-minded people can offer similar reassurance, energetically holding space and giving that simple nod as needed.
