We are humans. We come in all different shapes, colors and sizes. There are people who tell us that this is okay, yet, even so, have you noticed there seems to be a vast differential between self-perception and reality for many people? Why is it that we struggle so much to see ourselves as the world sees us? Is lack of Read the rest of this entry »
