  1. No amount of self-improvement can make up for lack of self-acceptance- that’s so true. You think to yourself, ‘if I do this, and achieve this, or become that…then I will be confident enough and be able to impress others with what I’ve got.’ But you achieve this and that, and find that you still consider yourself lacking. Then you realize the problem isn’t related to opinion of others at all. It is all about your opinion of yourself.
