The trap I was always in was the one I set for myself.
I used to feel awful when I couldn’t perfectly live up to someone else’s expectations and made mistakes.
What do I expect from myself?
To do better next time.
I preserve my own integrity by being honest with myself and making the mistake right…because my integrity is my soul and preserving it is real freedom.
That gave me the freedom to choose healthier relationships without the fear of losing something superficial.
What is it like being human?
Why should I be afraid of mistakes?
Being human is what makes me human…and being human is a lot more comfortable than being perfect.
Perfection is accepting my humanity and moving on with life.
