30 Days of Truth: Day 3

Today's mission is to write "something you have to forgive yourself for."

I have to forgive myself for not being perfect.

I struggle with this, day in, day out. I hold myself to an impossible standard, and I am constantly disappointed when I can't meet those expectations. It also works in tandem with the walls I wrote about on Day 1 -- I don't let anyone close enough to see beyond the facade out of fear that they can see the imperfections. I know this. I understand this. And still, every day, it is a challenge.

Yesterday: Day 02 → Something you love about yourself.
Tomorrow: Day 04 → Something you have to forgive someone for.

Hi Dara,
Another one of T2H's 30 Days of Truth writers here. Love, love, love your Day 2 post.

I forgave myself llloooooonnnnnggggg ago for even "wanting" to be perfect, let alone for NOT being perfect!

That's a very lovable person from Day 2! :-)
