We must always show ourselves impeccably in front of people in this almost ideal society by being well-groomed, well-dressed, and polite. In every area of life today, a person is first and foremost judged by how they show themselves externally. One's complex increases, their mood improves, and their confidence emerges when they concentrate on their personal care.
