GIVE YOURSELF PERMISSON TO BE PERFECTLY HUMAN NOT HUMANLY PERFECT

Do you have a mind that constantly criticizes you for not getting it right? You have a belief that there is a certain way things should be and the way you should be. We have these unreasonable expectations that we will act perfectly according to this identity we hold ourselves to be. The problem is that this is impossible. The one thing we can be perfect at is being human. “You can’t do human wrong.” Being human means that you are not perfect! You will judge yourself constantly for not getting it right. You will not live up to your expectations. Give yourself permission to this reality. Permission to be as you are not as you expect yourself to be. It is when we try and be more than human that we run into trouble. We need to be kind and give ourselves permission to be perfectly human, not humanly perfect
