Seeking Approval

Today i was asking my husband for an opinion and he looked at me, smiled and shrugged his shoulders. So i ask him what he meant by the shrug. Then this got me to thinking and reflecting. Why did I ask him for an opinion? and how would I take it if his opinion was different from mine ? I pondered and had a revelation that i was actually hoping to get him to give me an opinion that is similar to mine so that I can feel validated. And if he did gave me a reply that was different from mine and insisted i follow his opinion..... I can just imagine a different scenario and definately the start of a long argument. The beauty of the shrug is that it made me realise the freedom that comes with it. So any action if seen from a different perspective looks different : )
