All About Agreement and Self Validation: Do They Really Give Meaning to Life?

Self validation and agreement play important roles in our lives in terms of our emotional well-being, decision-making processes, and relationships with others. For example, have you ever heard the saying, “I think, therefore I am?” This phrase, coined by philosopher René Descartes, suggests that the very act of thinking and questioning one’s existence is proof of that existence. But what if we take this idea a step further? What if the things we agree with, and self validate are also given existence in our own individual universes?

It’s a fascinating concept to consider. It fundamentally contends that our beliefs and worldviews actively shape our subjective experiences in addition to the world around us. Let’s explore this idea and how it gives meaning to life, further.

All about self-validation and agreement, and the role they play in our existence.

Self validation is when we recognize and accept our own thoughts, feelings, and experiences without looking for approval or validation from others. When we are able to validate ourselves, we can develop a stronger sense of self-worth and self-esteem, which can have a positive impact on our overall mental health and happiness.

Agreement, on the other hand, refers to the act of seeking validation or agreement from others, such as friends, family, or colleagues. Seeking agreement from others can be helpful in some situations, like when making important decisions or getting feedback. However, it can become a problem if we depend too much on others to validate our own experiences and feelings.

In relationships, both self validation and agreement are important. When we are able to validate ourselves, we are less likely to become dependent on our partner for validation and are able to communicate our needs and feelings more effectively. Seeking agreement from our partner can also be helpful in building trust and fostering a deeper understanding of each other’s perspectives. This makes us feel more assured and confident about ourselves, giving new meaning to life.

Agreement as a form of stamp of approval

When we agree with something, we are essentially saying, “Yes, this is true for me.” When we agree with that idea or belief, we give it a certain amount of weight in our own minds. This may seem like a small thing, but over time, these validated beliefs can become the building blocks of our individual universes.

For example, imagine that you have always believed that hard work pays off. This is a belief that you have validated time and time again throughout your life. You work hard in school and eventually get a great job, reinforcing this belief even further. As a result, this belief becomes a core part of your individual universe. It’s something that you take for granted and assume to be true, even though others may not share this belief.

Now imagine that you encounter someone who does not share your belief. Perhaps they believe that success is more about luck or connections than hard work. Initially, you may feel frustrated or even dismissive of their perspective. After all, it doesn’t fit with your own validated idea.

Have you ever noticed how, when someone agrees with you, it feels like your idea or opinion has been validated? It’s like a stamp of approval that makes what you’re saying or thinking more real and tangible. This is because agreement gives something existence.

The power of self validation through agreement

The concept of validation through agreement is powerful, and it can be applied to many different areas of our lives. When we share our thoughts, ideas, or opinions with others, we are essentially putting them out into the world. However, until someone else acknowledges them, they remain in our own private universe.

When someone agrees with us, it’s like they are entering our universe and affirming the existence of our ideas. It’s like they are saying, “Yes, I see what you see. I understand what you’re saying, and I agree with you.”

This validation can be incredibly important to us, especially when we’re unsure of ourselves or when we’re trying to make sense of something. When we receive validation from others, it can help us feel more confident in self validating our own thoughts and feelings. It can also help us feel more connected to others because we know that we are not alone in our experiences or perspectives.

But it’s not just other people’s agreements that give our ideas existence. We also have the power to create our own universe through our beliefs and attitudes. Our thoughts and beliefs shape our reality, and when we believe something strongly enough, it becomes real for us. Our ability to believe that “I think therefore I am” helps us give meaning to life.

For example, if you believe that you are capable of achieving your goals, you are more likely to take action towards them and make them a reality. On the other hand, if you believe that you are not capable of achieving your goals, you are less likely to take action towards them and may never achieve them. The ability to self validate our own worth and capabilities is therefore a wonderful gift.

In this way, our thoughts, beliefs, and attitudes influence the individual universes we inhabit. When we believe something to be true, it becomes real for us, even if it may not be objectively true in the larger universe. Indeed, our ability to self validate can help us tap into our inherent self-worth and act toward our purpose.

Takeaway: Self validation and agreement give meaning to life.

Overall, the key is to strike a balance between self-validation and seeking approval or agreement from others. It’s important to be able to trust and validate our own experiences and feelings while also being open to feedback and seeking agreement when necessary.

So, the next time you share an idea or opinion with someone, remember that their agreement gives it existence. And when you are struggling to make sense of something or need validation for your thoughts and feelings, remember that you have the power to create your own universe through your beliefs and attitudes. With this understanding, we can all become the architects of our own individual universes.
