“Loving ourselves through the process of owning our own story is the bravest thing we will ever do.”
Vulnerability is scary. It is so often avoided. It means to show the parts of ourselves that we are afraid aren’t “good enough”. But you know what? Everyone has the same fear of not being good enough. When we are held hostage by that fear, we miss out on our true happiness. You live a life that you think others want you to live.
No one is perfect. Perfectionism is a cruel joke. Perfectionism makes us wake up every day feeling like we failed yesterday. There is no joy in that life. Dare to practice loving yourself for who you really are.
