Daily Prompt: Symptom

Daily Prompt: Acceptance

I am a people pleaser, It’s a part of who I am. Acceptance is something many strive for because we want to be liked. I know what having a low self-esteem is like and I want to be sure others in my life are accepted for who they are. We live in a world where people are seeking community and connections so acceptance is vital to making them feel wanted and needed, I know I am.

Love and inclusion are in my mind essential parts of being human. As Sally Field once said in her Academy Awards acceptance speech “you like me, you really like me” and that is so important to be liked. I would also say don’t do something against your better angels in order to fit into a crowd that would be harmful, that’s not good for you.
