At some point you stop wanting to be someone else, even your better self and stand up to reality. You are you. Deal with it. It comes after too much striving to please, too many articles about improving, so many books that you know will you'll never read. Maybe improvement is the new religion and you discover yourself to be an atheist. Stand tall. You're free. You'll become a vintage soul with deep character instead of some timid, striving, clawing, almost there character. There is no one to do the measuring or evaluation. There is no prize at the end.
