How do i live life happy without feeling the need to seek external validation?

I just want to live life without having to seek external validation. I have hobbies, why can’t i have fun with my hobbies without having to share what i do?

Then share what you do, but do it less and less. Taper it.

If you are good at your hobbies, it’s your duty to share your gift with the world! :sunny:

As you get older you’re not as hung up about that. You still need other people but it is not such a sharp pain. Try learning to accept yourself in totality, including the need for external validation. It might make your mental life more comfortable.


I think it’s awesome sharing your abilities to others. I enjoy learning about other people’s gifts. It’s great if you want to share your talents with others. Be proud of what you accomplish!
