Never try to impress

If you feel the need to impress a man, you are admitting that you see yourself below him. This is a painful feeling, and so you set out to prove that you can be on his level.

There is just one problem. Trying to impress people never works: an emotionally-mature man can see right through a show-off. Even if he does not realize right away, he will find out the truth soon enough. Then what? You are caught, looking desperate and weak.

Stop trying to be someone you aren’t. Be authentic, and accept yourself as you are. There is no earthly need to impress anyone because you are as valuable as anyone. Love yourself and be confident; then, you shall find no just cause to impress anyone.
