    I could not understand the text highlighted in blue. I also strongly suggest that you cut out the waffle, and add actual substance to that CV, especially under Employment History and even Education/Degrees.

    Re: CV content

    … understanding troubling questions (of/about?) human life

    I wanted to say this:

    I am interested in the source of difficulty that disturbs people's minds.


    and help shape their lives for the best to make this world a better place

    I added more information to make myself clearer:

    To fully understand anxiety disorder, emotional regulation, positive psychology, and personal development so that I can help people live a better, happy life.

    … discover new facts to apply them to real-world situations

    To learn from recent/previous studies conducted in the field that can be applied to real world situations

    I don't know how to go about that. Any help?

    The content of post #4 is mostly waffle or, at least, generic material that applies to any psychologist's profile.

    By "substance" I meant concrete details (dates, numbers, etc.)

    I would recommend putting the Education section first and the Employment History section second.
