Life is strange. We grow up, bound to our parents, and, for some reason, we are always looking for their approval. The reason is that we are wired that way. One sees the same thing with baby animals.
Then, we grow up. We continue to look for approval from people. We ask if someone likes us.
If we reach maturity, we can be like the poster. We can go into a new situation and wonder if we will like the people around us.
The change that happens over time is a miracle.
