Seeking Approval

Written by Sylvia

We spend to much of our life seeking approval from others.
Whether it is parents and siblings, even friends or lovers.
It is never a conscious decision that we make.
We don’t give it much thought and that can be a mistake.

It is far easier for us to submit, than ask them for respect.
We are paralyzed with fear that you won’t love us, I suspect.
You don’t need to be afraid and if you are refused,
run as fast as you can, move on, do not be confused.

You should choose wisely; for there are those when asked,
will deny the approval you seek, they’ll be unmasked.
If nothing else, please remember this,
be yourself, you don't need approval from others to exist.
