Why external validation is poison
Reading Time: 5 minutes
There is one friend who I admire. He has a bad reputation among the Vietnamese society in Berlin. If someone hears his name they ask: “The creepy one?”. In addition, his reputation is so bad that he cannot comes near a girl. They flee. That comes from his lack of communication and social ability. But, I know his attention is always good and he seeks what everyone is looking for, friends, and love. And every time I take him with me he produces a chain of awkwardness non-stop throughout the night. But I ask him why this does not bother him that his reputation is miserable. He told me that external validation is poison to my life so I stop paying attention to it.
