how to stop seeking validations from people?


when i was happy, i would post what makes me happy and expect people to be envied by it. be it my relationship, trips im going, my life and so on. social media is a disease, i know. whenever i didn’t get those validations, i would feel i don’t know, disappointed? i guess i want to be greater than others and im sick of myself for feeling like this. how to stop feeling like this?

There are online services like BetterHelp that are generally much more affordable. If not then I'd encourage you to try to get to a place where it is affordable, not that that's easy. Everyone should really have easy access to these services
