You can try to find the answers in the world, but you will only become more lost. You can look up articles, read books, watch movies, ask people, all the things that cause you to extend outwards to seek your answers. This will only add confusion by distracting you from everything that is within.
When you are able to pause for a moment and shut off the distractions, the answers will become more clear.
Most of the time we already know what the answers are, but we seek outwards anyway strictly because we are looking for reassurance. And even when we find approval on the outside, it still never seems to be enough. No amount of external recognition can fix the need for validation.
Only until you go deeper within will you lose the need for validation because you learn to trust yourself, trust your decisions, trust your wisdom.
