Don’t dilute yourself to please others. You can’t fulfill your purpose if you’re constantly trying to be someone else. You are perfect for your purpose, just as you are. If your purpose was meant for someone else, it would have been given to someone else, but it wasn’t. It was given to you, because it’s going to take being you to fulfill it.
In accepting yourself, you must become content with where you are while still striving for progress. We don’t fulfill our purpose by being distracted by negativity or comparison or ingratitude.
