At that , she admitted, “I wasn't producing the level of quality that I should have. I believe everyone had grown tired of me. I had grown tired of myself too.”

I reached a stage where I felt like I couldn't do anything correctly. If I walked on a red carpet, people would ask, ‘Why didn't she sprint?'

Lawrence proceeded to describe her experience of constantly trying to please others throughout her . She expressed, “By working, I believed that nobody would be upset with me. I would say yes and get things done, ensuring that nobody would be angry.”

And suddenly, it seemed as if I had reached a stage where my mere presence no longer brought to others.

That really made me realize that work or your career won't necessarily bring inner peace.
