Intellectually I know that the need for validation is an ego trait, but it is very difficult for me to get past. I seem to have daily breakthroughs in my interpretation of the data all around me, yet when I try to share this fascination it’s lost on my peers. By peers, I mean my wife because to her the things I notice are simple just like breathing. It’s so new to me though I feel like a child whose just learned how to read. I’m fumbling through Doctor Seuss while she recites Shakespeare. I read three of your books and I feel the answer to my question is obvious but I need validation. Is there any affirmation or exercise that you know of that would help me through this phase?
