“I vacillate between these two poles, “I’m the best/I’m the utter worst” “There is hope for my life/ my face needs surgery or god knows what” “A beautiful life is possible/ go away, I have two packs of twizzlers and the internet and I don’t need other humans” and so on.” – the work is to carve out a space of realism between those two, to know that neither is entirely true, that I am not flawless or one huge flaw, but have flaws. And that’s the position in which work can be done, in which there is an imperative for self-improvement, which makes it the most difficult one to internalize. – source: “Being Taken Seriosly Despite Good Looks” http://ift.tt/1hs1yQb
