Self Validation

  • 0:06 - 0:11
    Have you ever felt emotionally overwhelmed
    and just wanted to be comforted
  • 0:11 - 0:14
    or have someone tell you that they understand?
  • 0:15 - 0:18
    It’s ok, these are natural things to want!
  • 0:19 - 0:21
    This is called validation.
  • 0:22 - 0:30
    As we begin today’s lesson, if it feels comfortable,
    take the deepest breath you have taken all day
  • 0:30 - 0:35
    and gently stretch from side to side.
  • 0:37 - 0:42
    To validate is to recognize how someone is feeling
    and let them know that their feelings
  • 0:42 - 0:44
    are acceptable and ok.
  • 0:45 - 0:46
    Here is the thing…
  • 0:46 - 0:50
    The someone we are validating can be ourselves!
  • 0:50 - 0:53
    This is called self-validation.
  • 0:53 - 0:58
    That’s right, the statements of validation
    you might offer to a friend, family member,
  • 0:58 - 1:02
    or significant other, you can offer to yourself.
  • 1:02 - 1:08
    For example, if you are feeling anxious
    before a big exam, you might tell yourself:
  • 1:09 - 1:11
    “I am feeling really nervous right now,”
  • 1:12 - 1:16
    “it is common to feel anxious before tests.”
  • 1:17 - 1:21
    Giving self-validation can sometimes
    ease how we are feeling
  • 1:21 - 1:24
    and gives us permission to be human.
  • 1:25 - 1:28
    It can be a great way to have compassion
    when we are too critical
  • 1:28 - 1:30
    of ourselves.
  • 1:30 - 1:35
    Have you ever given yourself some helpful statements of validation?
  • 1:35 - 1:38
    How do you think it would impact your mood?
  • 1:39 - 1:42
    Next time you feel yourself needing
    some extra comfort,
  • 1:42 - 1:46
    maybe see how it feels
    to give some self-validation.
  • 1:47 - 1:48
    Have a good one.
