Throughout my life I have struggled with being self conscious of what people think of me. My whole life I always cared about what other thought about me. This drove me to do things that I actually didn’t want to do. I even got rhinoplasty (nose job) surgery to fix my weird nose, thinking that this would change my life. After the surgery my life was the same and no one really noticed the surgery. I started to realize that I concentrated so much of my time on what others thought of me and that I didn’t even know myself. I went on a search to find myself. I came to the conclusion that happiness comes from within and not from gaining external validation.
