There is no need to strive for perfection cause you are perfect the way you are. You are enough.
There is no need to look for outside affection because if you look inside yourself it will not be far.
There’s no need to change to meet the expectations everyone puts on you and though that may seem strange, it’s because you’ve been programmed to believe in a certain way about how you live your life. You act in a way others think you should but all that does is cause stress and strife. It affects you in a way you never thought it could. Like causing you to think your self esteem is low or that you’re insecure. Then it causes self-doubt. Also, it shuts down your effort to ever go for more. So if you think you would like to improve, do it for you and no one else. You have nothing to lose.
