Validation noun

This time I have gone with the google dictionary as the Oxford English did not really support my intended use of this word well. The definition I’m starting my discussion with is ‘recognition or affirmation that a person or their feelings or opinions are valid or worthwhile’.

In presenting some of the more difficult content in my work I am seeking the validation that I am not alone in my situation, my feelings and my reactions. Perhaps more importantly I would like my work to provide this validation for the viewer by saying things through my work that are often not discussed openly, and acknowledging feelings and reactions that it may have been thought socially necessary to keep secret.

Not sure that this one is so relevant and it seems a bit scant. Probably won’t use.
