It’s time to give up the illusion of being perfect and accept our human nature.
“There are no perfect human beings! Persons can be found who are good, very good indeed, in fact, great. There do in fact exist creators, seers, sages, saints, shakers, and movers…even if they are uncommon and do not come by the dozen. And yet these very same people can at times be boring, irritating, petulant, selfish, angry, or depressed. To avoid disillusionment with human nature, we must first give up our illusions about it.”
Abraham Maslow from Motivation and Personality
So expect others to have their good days and bad days.
So give yourself a break when you are not feeling on top of the world all the time.
So let go of the illusion – the beliefs about how you “should” be, and how others “should” be.
Accept that life is a series of highs and lows.
And most importantly – be kind towards the parts of you that are in the dark.
Hugs to all parts of you!
