Approval and Condemnation


“As much as we thirst for approval we dread condemnation.”

Hans Selye



My two cents: Approval is far more important than we realize.

We want our families’ support and approval from strangers.

It is why we join teams, organizations, political parties, and gangs.

We fear criticism and condemnation.

I fear condemnation more than I crave approval.

How about you?

    I fear approval and condemnation but I also learned to fear praise. They all became weaponized against me. Perhaps that’s why I don’t know what to do when people are to close.

  2. A minefield, depends on our mood and the external stimuli for me
