What’s more important to you, feeling connected to your true self, or feeling like you fit in? The truth is, if you don’t allow yourself to be your true and authentic self, you’ll always feel disconnected and you won’t be able to fit in.
Narcissistic behaviour isn’t the same as self-love. In actual fact, if someone is so keen to demonstrate how much they adore themselves, it’s usually overcompensating for a lot of insecurity.
