Desire to be seen

Hi coaches. I was finding myself in a place of insomnia and anxiety and I asked myself what ‘unmet need’ I had that moment. The clear immediate answer I got was ‘to be seen’, seen in my struggles seen for the good that I have to give, to be recognized and validated. Of course, I’d love to have that come from the others. Now you probably will suggest me to provide all of that by myself, but can it be a mix of the two? Meaning that the desire to be seen by others could also be equally valid to be welcome and answered, by going finding people that can ‘see’ us. I’d be grateful if you could offer me you point of view on how to work on this, thanks!
