I often hear people say, "Today was a bad day," but I've learned that we don't have to allow things to affect our entire day.
Whether we admit it or not, we all seek validation. We want to be liked and want to be loved. We want to feel appreciated and we want to feel like we matter.
When I first started Forholy, I developed a discipline to write my posts on Sunday nights. Everyone knows not to call or text me on Sunday nights. My mom is the only exception, and I only take her phone calls because I like to read my finished posts to her.
She's one of the few people I trust to give me honest feedback. And after I read my messages to her, I can always tell by her response whether she enjoyed it or thinks it can be better.
