“Your need for acceptance can make you invisible in this world…
risk being seen in all your glory.”
The second quote can only be fully understood in light of the first quote.
Being content and comfortable with oneself and certain of our own unique value cancels the need to scramble for worthiness.
For clarity, Carrey is not talking about being an I-don’t-care-about-anyone-except-me jerk. He is talking about using one’s complete and unique self to make a difference for others.
Not one of us can pull this off successfully until we quit comparing ourselves to:
- What we think we should be
- What others think we should be
- Anyone or anything else
I like this a lot.
