You don’t need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself. Some individuals obsess on their physical appearance and numbers, but are motivated by low self-esteem and criticize the flaws of their physical appearance. Some sacrifice rest and sleep in order to achieve further success but, in turn, drive their body into illness or burnout
Physical strength is measured by what we carry. Inner strength is measured by what we can bear. It is great to be physically strong and look beautiful, but it is greater to be strong and beautiful inside. It is these inner qualities that make you a better person, help you achieve higher goals in life, add more meaning to your life
Strength is beauty, and also pain.
