There's a strain and internal conflict in the mind when you try to live up to people's standards. Beyond pleasing the people around you, there is a people-pleasing the "people" that you believe you are. The conflict comes from trying to meet the standard of the ideal person you believe you should be. You cannot simply change the form of your behavior when psychologically and emotionally you have not reached that point of change. Instead, be spontaneous and authentic until you have purification of mind, where everything comes together into integrity. David shares about his own experiences . . .
