How the Power of Validation Can Change a Life

How Validation Can Change a Life

The power of validation can change a life. Really. Unfortunately the power of invalidation can suck hope out of people’s lives, leaving them feeling insecure and depressed. But we don’t want to focus on the ugly today, so let’s see how easy it is to bring positive change to others.

The Power of Validation

This 18 minute film, Validation, will make you smile, cry, and change the way you interact with people. It is one of my long time favorites. Besides, TJ Thyne is an awesome actor. 

(If you received this post via RSS or email and cannot view the video clip, please visit my Holy in the Daily blog to have your dose of validation for the week.)

Soooo??? What do you think? Awesome, right?

“Jesus likes it when we share.” -Adelaide, age 3: Pass this along to everybody and their brother. OK, maybe not everybody’s brother, but you know . . . all of your friends would be nice.

      LOVE it!!!!!! When strangers smile at me, I feel validated as not just someone passing by, but an important human being in their world, if only for a moment. God’s smile through a stranger.

      Once, again, Susan, thank you so much. The love of God is passed on even when we are not aware of what our words and smiles can do. Oh, Lord, help me to complete your work in my attitude.

      Love,

      Willa
