Seeking approval from others is not a recipe for finding happiness. In fact, trying to win the approval of others only batters our confidence, leads to low self-esteem and adds fuel to our mental stories. In this video I explain how seeking inner peace should be our aim instead of relying on the impermanent opinions of others. I also offer different perspectives to help us break free of our neurosis so we can stop looking for approval from others and find the inner peace and happiness we are all searching for.
