Writing has always been a way for people, including myself, to express themselves. From poets to authors. From novelists to autobiographers. The written word as difficult as it may be for some, comes second nature to others. I am blessed to be one of the people who have the talent for writing.
But talent is the beginning of it. The second part is the passion. Being passionate about things in life is the reason why those things work. As a result today I am sharing with you a poem I wrote on Snapchat a few weeks back.
Share it will your friends online and follow me on Instagram: @terri2kool to keep up with me!
Humans have a deep desire to receive validation from outside sources. Whether it is justification for an outfit we put together. Or credit for the work we have completed on a project, there are many things we want people to pat us on the back for. But why? Why do we care so much about what others have to say about us?
The most obvious answer is that society made us this way. The society of our culture. The family norms we were taught. The school rules and regulations we had to follow. Whenever we did something right or “worthy” of praise, we received validation.
