addicted to praise?

“Without solitude, we cannot fathom just how enslaved we are. So many of us are chained to the opinion of others. We’re addicted to praise and affirmation and eviscerated by criticism. Vainly, we busy ourselves in managing the impressions others have of us. We exhaust ourselves in trying to become somebody in their eyes.”

Just read this HERE in a book excerpt in Christianity Today. Like me, you may have to wade through the beginning to get to the meat but once you’re there, it really is a thought provoking read.

Extroverts beware.
