need for the approval of others, be careful.
If you find yourself unwilling to
take actions that others disapprove of,

is a sign of low self-esteem,
and in severe cases, a condition termed co-dependency.

Watch your words, for they become actions.
Watch your actions, for they become habits.
Watch your habits, for they become character.
Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.
