I often feel nervous whether I'm alone or not. Because I always feel that I'm doing something wrong or I've done something wrong. Such a paranoia. The feeling that someone will punish me, mock me, will make a hell of my life because I've done wrong or nothing at all or just because they don't like me - my looks, acts, words.

That feeling that I have to please and be liked by everyone.

"I can't do anything successfully...
I won't behave sufficiently...
Nobody will love me...
And a lot of people will feel hatred, contempt for me...
They will abandon me because I did and constantly do something wrong..."

But now... Answer me sincerely - Why do I have to measure up to the idea of what other people want me to be? Am I supposed to be not enough to myself? No.

I am not.

Forget about others for a moment. The only thing that matters is if YOU fulfill YOUR expectations, desires, priorities, values, if you are satisfied, proud, if you see the flaws because others do. If you love yourself. Because when you truly love, believe in yourself, none of these scarecrows could be scary.
