  • Why Do We Seek Approval?

    in Motivation

    We are always looking for someone to say we are OK. In one way or another it fuels us to think that others think we are on the right track, that we are doing the right thing, that we are percieved as someone who is not doing anything wrong and that others having nothing they can say about us that is wrong. We are so sensitive because pleasing each other is innate in us and when we are not pleasing others we start to feel like we have to take on protective attitudes to cope. Why is that we seek approval? Tune in and join in on the conversation, tomorrow morning at 5:30 AM, PST!

    Being The Scapegoat And Trying Everything To Get Approval [Thriver Story #25]

    in Relationships

    I’m really excited because today I have another incredible Thriver story.

    If you were abused as a child, by a parent or family member, you are especially going to want to make some time to listen to this story.

    It’s pretty incredible!

    This story is about a Cindy, a wonderful woman within our NARP community and is also a moderator in the NARP forum (Like Phil who I had on the show a few weeks ago).

    Cindy grew up in dairy farm in Wisconsin with foster parents. Her mother was the narcissist and her father was the co-dependent enabler.

    She spent her youth growing up trying to win her Mother’s approval and inevitably became the scapegoat of the family.

    If you grew up with a narcissist in your family you will definitely relate to:

    Being told you will never amount to anything and trying countless things to win their approval.

    Being manipulated by shame, guilt, gaslighting and emotional blackmail.

    And the vicious events of rage that escalated throughout your youth.


    If you are not yet a member of NARP I would like to invite you to take part in my next Webinar - The 3 Keys To Thriving After Narcissistic Abuse which is taking place next week.

    Or if you are someone who is had enough of the pain and want to start getting your life back on track starting now...

    SwCA Episode 136: HELP! - "I Am Addicted to Approval (from everyone)!"

    in Business

    SITE: http://www.courtneyanderson.com/swca-episode-136-help-situation-spotlight-series-i-am-addicted-to-approval-from-everyone.html


    SHOW NOTES: This episode is, “I Am Addicted to Approval (from everyone)!”


    What is the definition of “Approval?” : the belief that something or someone is good or acceptable : a good opinion of someone or something 


    Approval. (n.d.). Retrieved June 10, 2014, from http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/approval


    What is the definition of “Addicted?”: a strong and harmful need to regularly have something (such as a drug) or do something (such as gamble)


    Addiction. (n.d.). Retrieved June 10, 2014, from http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/addiction


    What is the reason for the the addiction to approval (from everyone)? 
    It is the core belief that, “I am not good (enough).” So, you try to “fix it” by seeking out other people to make you feel “good enough” (but they are not able to counter your internal belief so you stay stuck in pain).


    How to “fix it?”
    Change your belief to, “I am good (enough).”


    How?
    Seek professional, individual, group, religious, spiritual, psychological help if needed (whatever works for you).
