Sometimes we take things on with good intentions, and sometimes we take things on for the high. We start things because we are looking for that positive admiration from the crowd. We want to fit in. We want to be praised. We want to feel good. So we do these things with intention of succeeding, but once the high wears off we look for the next high. This is an addiction. The need for constant attention and admiration..intense gratification. The need to feel good by the approval of others.
How do we overcome this? How do we turn that switch off? How do we learn self-approval?
This is what I am asking myself today..
