I have recently decided that I want to be appreciated by people and not accepted by them. To be accepted means to receive something offered, to be appreciated means to be regarded/observed in high value. I have personally concluded that my existence and energy is not an offering to the universe but more one of its constants. My presence is a wave of energy that’s needed to maintain natural order. If I was willing to subject myself to the laws of “acceptance” it would mean I would have to present myself to someone.
However, if I subject myself to letting those persons appreciate me, they can do so at will and without my impedance. They simply to decide to observe and appreciate me for what they value from my presence rather than a rehearsed or polished presentation of self.
I want to be appreciated – simply observed for my good deeds and actions. The appreciation can be given directly to me, however I would rather the energy be allocated to a positive gesture that another person can benefit from.
The act of another person’s “appreciation” of me is not a form of validation form me, but a way to ensure that I continually provide positive energy to people. The validation I seek comes from within!
