“If all cosmos were the same distance apart, gravity would pull them all in the same direction. They’d remain perfectly aligned, and precisely nothing would happen. Irregularity, imperfection, and lack of order in hydrogen compacts, atoms of gas gravitating away from each other, and compressed temperatures is what created our universe. Perfection in our galaxy simply does not exist. Without imperfection, neither you nor I would exist.” —Into The Universe with Stephen Hawking: ‘The Story of Everything’
Utilize this as an analogy next time attempt to undermine your self-worth caused by fallacious and subjective standards one must meet in order to attain aesthetic appeal. Symmetric cannot be created if its source is asymmetric.

"Why do you work out so much?"… When I try to explain that I’m training and not working out, a lot of people don’t understand what this means. You wouldn’t ask a marathoner why they do so much "cardio", a sprinter why they do so much "HIIT", or any competitive athlete why they "exercise" so much. Powerlifting is my sport and I train to increase my 1RM for the squat, bench press, and dead lift. I don’t do ab exercises. I don’t try to "tighten" or "tone" anything. I don’t work out specific body parts to make them look different. I just train to be a better athlete. The physique I have achieved through weight lifting is just a plus. I hope this explains my mindset!
