If we are always on a path of self-improvement there will always be a sense of lack as there will always be something to improve. Always a need to judge and compare.
If we are on a path if self-acceptance then not only will we have inner peace but we will grow without our ego looking for perfection. We will become our true self and not judge ourselves or compare ourselves to others.
To be truly free we need to step off the path, let go of fitting in, to not feel we have to follow the crowd, to not have to agree with someone, to not have to be polite, to not worry that we might offend someone.
We have to be ourselves, not the ego-driven self-image that the mind creates, I mean our true essence from our soul.
We have to break the chains of conformity and be brave enough to be vulnerable and show the world the true light from within us
We’ll spend a lifetime being polite, agreeing, fitting in and doing what others want and yet suffer from not being able to be ourselves.
Freedom is to just be. We don’t have to become anything, we can be nobody and be content that we no longer have to be constrained by mind created roles we feel we have to play to be liked and fit in.
