I'm very familiar with being acceptance-driven and trying to change aspects of myself so that others will like me. But for what? It didn't really get me anywhere in the long run. We spend so much time doing this; all it does is pressure ourselves to be someone else, ultimately making it impossible to love ourselves genuinely. Today, I'm still very involved in changing myself, but it's more like I'm developing myself. If you put just a little bit of effort into improving yourself, the right people will automatically appear in your life and help you blossom. Is anyone familiar with this in romantic, platonic, or professional relationships? How did you get out of this trap and what sorts of things do you do to change/improve yourself for the better?
Also, I have news! Many of you don't know this but I have a PhD in cognitive neuroscience and have been working for several neuro-tech companies in Denmark over the years. This week I announced that I am launching my own Danish neuro-tech mental health company called Neurora, where my team and I help other companies in Copenhagen with stress-related burnout. I'd really love it if those of you who are on LinkedIn could follow me and/or my company's profile for support. There I will post about how to have a healthy work-life balance and tools anyone can use to de-stress.

~ Thanks to all. Thanks for all. ~
Speaking of thanks for all, I was hoping we could acknowledge everyone who comments below. I know it seems like a small gesture, but many people here have never opened up to anyone before and being open and honest with strangers can be quite scary. So, if we could show our gratitude by giving their comment a simple reply or heart, I’m sure they would really appreciate your team support. What do you say?
