“Trying to Be Someone comes from an insecurity, which stems from the ego’s need for observers and admirers. It needs acknowledgment and stimulation to feel solid. But leaning psychologically and emotionally out into the world, demanding to be noticed, trying to be cool, seeking approval and acceptance, trying to impress, seeking praise and respect, creates imbalance and weakness. It is, in fact, an affirmation that says, “I’m not okay. I need others to approve of me in order to feel secure.” By leaning psychologically, you weaken yourself.”
Stuart Wilde, in “Silent Power”
