Happiness Is… Research Note #6

Spending time with family on this holiday, and also, generally as an artist who craves validation, I’ll try to bear in mind this bit of wisdom:

Relationships thrive when they shift from the desire to be validated, to the desire to be known.

—Paraphrased from Nathaniel Branden paraphrased by Tal Ben-Shahar in Happier.
