Approval Seeking? How To Stop It!
Most of us like approval & validation from others. That’s fine. It is when we NEED approval from others that this becomes problematic. It is a problem as we make other people’s opinions more important than our own. There is no benefit to us trying to please everyone, as this is impossible. Why not please one person all the time? You!
These EFT set-up statements will start you off in a more healthy direction:
|‘Even though I trust other’s opinions over my own, I deeply & completely love & accept myself. I choose to ask myself next time, as I know me best’
‘Even though I am easily manipulated by others when I allow them to decide what I should wear, feel, think & act I deeply & completely love & accept myself. I choose to be responsible for me instead of being at the whim of other people’s approval’
‘Even though I feel threatened if someone disagrees with me, I deeply & completely love & accept myself. I choose to accept everyone has different opinions & no one is right or wrong including me’
‘Even though I ask countless questions of others to seek their permission, I deeply & completely love & accept myself. I choose to increase my self confindence by trusting in my own ability to take charge’
