Saying that we do not want to be miserable is not enough.
Unless we come to some conclusions about what makes us suffer, we are only playing a game with ourselves.
Since this is so, looking honestly and accepting what we see is the way to deal with self-image.
Looking for knowledge and wisdom, seeking out a way of being that is mentally healthy and balanced, we force the self-image to show itself.
Then it is up to us to respond.
