I believe you are perfect exactly as you are. Why do I believe this? It isn't some meaningless platitude just to make you feel better. I believe this because evolution doesn't make mistakes. Each organism evolves in response to the environment and food available, creating over eons a creature that is perfectly optimised for the world around it. And you are not an exception to this. You are perfectly designed for a uniquely specific environment and certain food. Certain influences from the world around you, stressors, joys, and vegetables,
This means, if you struggle with a recurring challenge--for example, how to lose weight, frequent infections, digestive discomfort, anything--the solution might not be about finding what's wrong with you. It might lie in finding the aspects of the world around you that don't synch up with your perfectly optimised genes.
Understanding your unique DNA design allows you to hone in on what aspects of our modern world just don't work for you. Is it refined carbohydrates, or a sedentary office job, or stress, or toxins, or disturbed sleep that will be your biggest challenges?
And this is hugely empowering! You can let go of those thoughts that tell you you're wrong, you're to blame. You can start believing that it's the world around you that needs to change a little. You can skip all the wrong turns and trial and error and focus on what will make the most difference for you, and you can understand why these things are important for you. You can appreciate your uniqueness but also the uniqueness of every person, cultivating an increased understanding and acceptance of others in a world that could use a lot more of these things.
This doesn't mean, of course, that you don't need to change. Changing your personal environment might mean introducing meditation or more green vegetables or daily physical activity and finding a way to build this into your world so that it becomes non-negotiable. But the difference is that you're no longer working in opposition to who you are in your DNA, and you fundamentally understand why the effort required to make those changes is necessary to who you are.
You are perfectly designed for a particular environment, but our world is generally set up to make us fail. Instead, why not create a world around you that is designed to make you succeed? To bring out all the perfectly evolved qualities of your DNA. Evolution doesn't make mistakes. This is why understanding your genes and personalising your world might be the most important thing you ever do for yourself.
