Do you really need to fix yourself? Not really. There's nothing fundamentally wrong with you. When we switch off the constant need to analyze and improve and fix things (ourselves included), we can experience peace.

How does that happen? Through practicing the skill of observation. An observer simply witnesses things. No analysis. No judgment. Simply seeing things as they are. Not as they should be. It is through witnessing that we develop understanding. If we are constantly in mental motion, all is a blur. So Swami Tommy suggests to observe and be still. And understand. And know this: You do not need to be fixed.
