Do you feel pressured to be perfect?
I used to feel that I had to be the perfect daughter, the perfect wife, the perfect mother. I was convinced that was the only way I would ever be accepted by certain people in my life. I thought I had to be the person they wanted me to be,rather than being the person I actually am.
I was forty years old before I finally found the strength to let go of the idea of perfection. Now I simply try to be the best ME that I can be. If other people can't accept me that way, then I have to realize they are the ones with the problem, not me.
