To be insecure about virtues or attributes of the self, we have to maintain some notion, no matter how remote, that we possess some of it to begin with. I don’t have such insecurities any longer. Acceptance has allowed me to know with certainty what insignificance I’ve achieved in my life and I therefore have no inclination to seek such acceptance from others any more.
