Give yourself permission to be human

TV, movies, and romance novels portray people who are perfect: they are beautiful, wealthy; their lives effortlessly buzz along, always according to plan.

It’s fake. No one’s life is like that… ever. So don’t hold yourself to such an impossible standard — you won’t achieve it. Get rid of any idea that you’re perfect, or that you somehow have to be perfect.¬†You are a human; humans make mistakes; you are allowed to make mistakes; you can make a lot of mistakes and still be successful.
