You Are An Approval Whore

Why do we do things for approval?

We buy silly things that cost silly amounts of money just to receive approval from silly people.

You don’t buy fancy things for yourself. That statement is bullshit and a big fat lie.

Youv’e just been dropped into the jungle and you have ten items required for your survival in your possession. In front of you there is a shop selling two types of bags. One is a small plasticky ‘Gucci’ bag worth £700. The other bag is a small ‘Berghaus’ rucksack worth £70. You are going to need to survive for 1 year, what bag are you likely to take?

Yes, obviously you will take the Berghaus rucksack. A well made, rugged and durable piece of equipment much up to the task of protecting, storing and carrying your items safely. So why do we chose to buy stupid shiny, fancy, tacky and impractical, named bags to wonder around the high-street in?

The short answer is…

Because you want to fit in. You want approval. You are an approval whore. 

Why?

The reason people want to fit in and want to feel the acceptance of others is to do with insecurity. Insecurity simply stems from lack of self love and lack of self awareness. People believe that they aren’t good enough so they must by ‘add-ons’ to make them feel like they will be more acceptable to others. This is totally absurd but it goes on each and everyday, all over the world. We have a yearning to want to be someone or something else. Something that we are currently not whatever it is you want to be. The problem is that wanting to be something you are not means you will never ever ever have true love for yourself or others. Yes i said others. Someone once said to me…

If you cannot love yourself, you cannot love anybody else. 

You have too truly love yourself unconditionally before you can love anyone else. That love you believe you have for others is not love. It is a mixture of attachment, infatuation or a want or need for the company of that said person.

Self awareness?

Self awareness is truly knowing who you are, what you are supposed to do and what you are good/bad at. If you know who you are you don’t need ‘add-ons’ to enhance yourself. You don’t need ‘add-ons’ to make other people accept who you are because when you know yourself, you should know that if someone doesn’t accept you for who you are in your natural form then they can go F themselves quite simply.

Insecurity is one of many mental blockages or illnesses. It prevents you from ever being truly happy or ever having the ability to accept yourself for who you are.

Insecurity also comes from the EGO.

The simple fact that ‘I’ want this, or ‘I’ must have this, automatically illuminates the moral power of your ego over your true self.

Or

‘I’ am not wearing/buying this for anyone else, it’s just for ‘ME’, ‘I’ like it.

I & ME are the words that engage the power of the ego.

YOU don’t need anything. YOU just want it. YOU don’t need a new handbag  because a bag is not a necessity. YOU do not need it to survive, YOU just want it because YOU believe it will make YOU look the part so you have the approval of others. YOU want it because you are greedy or YOU want to show off.

All showing off says is you feel like you have a point to prove. Why do you need to prove a point? Because you want attention. And why would one require attention? Because one feels like they haven’t got enough approval or attention which makes one feel insecure.

The need for approval illustrates that you are lacking security, self worth and self love.

If only you knew…

That the world is an illusion. There is no life nor death. There is only continuation. You don’t even have to die when you die…

Forget about all the things you think you know and start again. You are truly wasting your life away worrying about the opinions of others. The human race, evolution and well being of the planet are merely fictional notions that you consider to be true.

STOP for once in your life and just ask yourself:

Am I truly happy?

Who am I?

What I am doing in this life and world of mine?

Does life make any sense to me?

Does this world make any sense to me?

Am I truly fulfilling all my wants and needs?

AM I DOING THIS FOR ME BECAUSE I WANT TO DO IT, OR AM I DOING THIS BECAUSE OTHER PEOPLE WANT ME TO DO IT???

Be honest when answering these questions. If you don’t know the answers then find them out. The time is now regardless of your ‘situation’.
