“Let go of who you think you’re supposed to be and embrace who you are.” Brené Brown
The attempt to be perfect is the epitome of insanity. When one thinks of imperfection, one immediately thinks of flaws in a negative context. If we think about what we perceive as our own flaws we often try to find ways to hide them behind masks or look to ‘fix’ or ‘remove’ aspects of our personality rather than look at ways to embrace our imperfections. While it’s never a bad thing to seek different ways to improve oneself, this must be done with a careful eye on balance. We don’t need to “fix” ourselves before we are acceptable to ourselves or anyone else; we are worthy just as we are.
