So, here I am again. Wide awake at 3am. Wondering if I will ever be able to maintain perspective. Wondering if I will ever allow myself to be comfortably fallible. Of course, I am fully aware of my fallibility; the problem is I seem to see it as a punishable offense rather than a condition of my humanity.
Sometimes I will get it wrong….that’s not my goal, but it happens. Sometimes I will be less scrupulous and when that happens I would like to call that good enough (maybe even normal since I tend to be over-scrupulous) instead of lazy.
Maybe as of now, I will show myself some compassion.
“If your compassion does not include yourself, it is incomplete.”
