The Approval of Others

Lately I've been painfully aware of just how much the approval of others means to me. If you've stuck with my writing long enough, you may remember a story of a girl who once told me my shoes didn't match my belt and how I never wore those shoes again. Perhaps I should've realized this sooner.

It's just more obvious now. I can feel it.

When I make someone laugh, I can feel it.

When I disappoint someone, I can feel it.

That's all I have to day. Just some awareness.
