I'm a lot cooler on the internet

Our generation's “lok kee kayn ge” (what will people say?) is “how many likes will this get”. ⁣
Validation's a dangerous yet understandable addiction; it's in our DNA - the acceptance of the tribe was the difference between life & death. Many of our parents grew up in a less intense version of that, and they've passed it down. Social acceptance can still play an important role in our life, but it can also hold us back. 

The happiest among us learned a key secret: mind your business & watch what energy you put out there.
Maybe I took this picture strategically to give off the impression that I'm ironic & meta, or maybe it was a beautiful moment worth documenting, or maybe it was just a picture I sent to the person who gifted me the mug; you'll never know. Most people will scroll by, some will double-tap, and fewer will make it this far into the caption, & all of that's okay. Great things have happened to me when, despite caring what others thought, I made decisions as if I didn't; the more I made those types of decisions, the more freedom I found.
Validation is a helluva drug, and the first step to kicking the addiction is to admit there is one. That self-awareness (& deleting these apps off your phone) will set you free
