Approval!!

Approval!


A very positive word indeed..

Wanted to write one of those hyperbolical blogs, full of wisdom and poetic verses. After all it feels nice to show the world how language savvy and learned u r..

APPROVAL isn’t this we look for every now and then.

Be it the way you say or do things every thing has the same reason behind it ,the more you have the merrier life becomes.

May be because, that is what we have been taught right from the day one of the kindergarten. One should be socially acceptable. One should seek appreciation n obviously one should slog hard for the same.

Obviously, ders nothing wrong with that but isn’t it kind of abstruse why others have so much of say in our lives. How can they decide what is right or what is wrong, How can they guide our deeds. Why self-approval is so implicit and missing from our lives.

Who defines these standards to approve or disapprove anything? Isn’t self-approval enough to endorse whatever we do.

Is success defined in terms of token of acknowledgement we have collected..

Don’t know, think ders very little of self in all of us and the more u become successful the greedier u become for the APPROVAL!

(Anyway feel free to drop in ur comments. No offence intended!J)

doesnt scratch the surface much...

ur questions are limited, in their depth, because of a comfort level that you want to cling to...

if u probe enough, the answers will be disturbing!!!

i do agree that success is quantised by the quantum of tokens of acknowledgement one collects...

but regarding the 'self' in one's life.. i think it is subjective. even the approval of 'other(s)' we seek has an approval of self preceding it! irrespective of the fact whether it is a conscious or subconscious decision.

the worst part is the hypocricy that lies in the denial of self responsibility, subsequently.

Wake up!!We are a part of a materialistic world ,no matter how much we wan to deny it.Self-approval to me is a self-denial approach to life.Approval from others is what we always seek and what justifies whether the path we take has any believers.
Self-approval probably is a word for the so called blessed and fictious ones like Howard Roark from "The Fountain head"..

@ abra-ka-dabra

self approval = whether i believe my self or not.

approval from surroundings = whether i can convince my surroundings, enough to believe in me.

the surroundings here are those who dont want to think. they want to only play and ply a game of statistics. in a way they would be quite depenendent on you.

anybody else (others) are not concerned enough.
