Have you ever been trying to explain something to a loved one or friend and they keep interrupting you?
Or they keep trying to offer solutions to your problem when you never asked? They’ll often start their sentences with: The hard part is that they’re often trying to help.
EXAMPLE: your license, registration and title along with insurance,prove that you are a valid and legal driver; able to show that you know what you're doing behind the wheel of car and how to prevent or fix any problems that may occur, as well as the fact that you can prove ownership of the vehicle.
But when your feelings aren’t validated in a similar situation, you start to shrug them off, thinking “They’re probably right.Self-validation is the step that comes before self-compassion.Acknowledging that the internal experience exists and is understandable comes before self-kindness.When someone says they feel validated, it means there has been confirmation, or proof, that what they have done, or plan to do, has been done correctly/properly and fairly and they are now being acknowledged for that.Validation is the act of proving that something is correct and/or fair.
