「承認欲求」を罵倒語として使う人は、まず「賞賛されない自分」という負けを認めることができない。へたくそな歌い手よりもさらに音痴だという負けを認められない。「踊ってみた」の動画をアップロードする勇気もないという負けを、どうしても認めることができない。だから「アウトプットすること」そのものを罵倒の対象にするしかなくなる。

ほんとうなら「負けたよ、あんたすげーよ」と言うべきではないだろうか。

負けた悔しさ、賞賛されない妬ましさを燃料にして、自分を磨くべきではないだろうか。「今日は負けた。でも、いつか必ず勝つからな」と言えることが技能を伸ばすには欠かせない。臥薪嘗胆。負けを認められない人間は、勝つこともできない。

モノを創ったことがある人なら、誰でも「負ける経験」をしているはずだ。

圧倒的な才能の持ち主を目撃して、彼我の差に愕然としたことがあるはずだ。自分の稚拙さに気づき、恥ずかしさのあまり死にたくなったことがあるはずだ。チャンスに恵まれた他人を妬むあまり、憎しみに近い感情を持ったことがあるはずだ。夜中に1人、大声を上げて暴れたくなったことがあるはずだ。

それでも、モノを創ることをやめられない。

1000回負けた先にある、たった一言の賞賛がほしいからだ。

誰かに「よかったよ」と声をかけられるだけで救われるからだ。

他人の承認欲求を笑う人は、自分もアウトプットすることができなくなる。

笑われるのが怖くなるからだ。

アウトプットができない人間は、笑われない代わりに、評価されることもない。だから他人の承認欲求を笑う人は、自分の承認欲求も満たせない。永遠に、満たせない。
