Sheila Heti

"I think it's useful to work on improving yourself, but then to stop. I don't think that that's an occupation one should continue for one's whole life. I think you should give maybe ten years to the pursuit, and then stop. Because you just sort of have to accept yourself, and say this is who I am and these are my limitations. You can't always be trying to make yourself better, because you stop seeing the world--you only see yourself."
