Do We All Need Applause?

Do we all need applause? Do we all need an audience? Do we all need fans? Most psychologists would say “yes.” Why is this? It is because most disorders, other than chemical ones, tend to relate to a single thing.

This thing is often related to an individual not having received recognition of some kind early in their life. This is part of the reason that for ten years we implemented the Platinum PIAs Awards.

We believed that those who are doing good for the community, deserve to have recognition for that. So, each year we would bring together community members as an audience for just that purpose.

We would recognize both online and offline creators and entrepreneurs. We felt then, and still do so today, that we all need some form of an audience, fans or love to maintain happiness.

Of course, in addition to the psychological mechanisms there are chemical ones as well. The mind is mysterious indeed, but one thing for certain, even introverts need relationships.

Relationships can include friendships, romantic partners, coworkers, and more involving emotional support. This can be very helpful in this thing called life.

So even though we are not currently producing the annual Platinum PIAs any longer, we still have adhered to our mission to recognize business owners and creatives who are making a difference both in their in-person and online communities.

We do this this recognition process in various ways, including positive posts like this one, that also includes the current 57 websites that are a part of the Blog Coalition. Additionally, do our best to give recognition on a continual basis.

Giving recognition can include letting friends, family and coworkers know that they are good people and making a difference in the lives of others. In short, we believe that we all need applause.
