The need for others to notice me
“The need for others to notice me” was written by guest contributor, Babajide Faseyi
When I first started to write, I was just so happy to be expressing myself. I was just so happy to be at a place where I felt free to express myself. It didn’t matter too much who noticed what I was doing or not. I was just so happy to be free.
Then as time went on, it began to matter whether I was noticed or not. I began to need more than the happiness I already got from simply expressing myself. I began to need more recognition than the recognition I was happy to be getting before.
I began to notice a need in myself to get noticed and this felt like a burden on me. It didn’t feel like the old days anymore when I was simply happy to just be me.

But now, I am starting to feel like the old days again.
When I was just happy to dive deep into the depths of myself and to give honestly of myself. And what was it that I learned that has got me feeling like the old days again?
I have learned that as long as my expression is coming from the deepest and truest part of myself, then my expression is by itself it’s own reward. The feeling that I get when I have allowed myself to leave the space of my head alone and get intimate with my heart is by itself nourishing to my soul. And when I have expressed myself honestly from the depths of my heart, I truly begin to see that there is no amount of outside approval that can ever be as satisfying as the approval that comes from my own self.

About the Author: My name is Babajide Faseyi. I was born and raised in Nigeria and then moved to the United States for college at the age of 19. In my 20’s, I became acutely aware that there was more to life than I had been taught and this led me to a deep search. I read voraciously. After a period of disillusionment with not having an outlet for the creativity that I felt within myself, I encountered Eckhart Tolle’s book, The Power of Now. And thus, the journey of knowing who I truly am and the discovery of what I have to offer creatively began.
