171. How to… forgive yourself.

Human beings are, on the whole, a hilarious train wreck of a species. We are in constant competition with ourselves and with each other. Some of us feel like we must to everything. Some think they can. Some have lots of skills. Some have none at all. We’re all a mess, really. Think about it for a minute. Other animals aren’t like this. This is why your cat brings you presents. Even your cat can recognize a train wreck when she sees it, and she’s trying to help you along, because… let’s be honest: we all need it.

The thing is, sometimes, we’re so damn hard on ourselves that we can never pull ourselves out of the hole we’ve managed to dig. So we just sit there, waiting for the walls to come tumbling down on top of our heads, and we accept that our life – our world – has become this tiny, terrible, claustrophobic thing that we can’t escape. But that’s the farthest thing from the truth, isn’t it? In reality, we’re stuck there because we’re scared, because we’re used to it and we’re afraid that change could make it worse, or… we’re punishing ourselves for not being the perfect version of us that we imagine we are.

We have to stop doing that crap to ourselves. We need to take a deep breath, and smile, and accept that sometimes, the world is chaos and there is absolutely nothing that we can do about it because – and this may come as a shocker to some of you – none of us is perfect. Not a single damn one. It’s simply not possible, and holding yourself to such a ridiculous standard means you’re always going to be disappointed. You’re always going to be punishing yourself. Until you can accept yourself and love yourself for being the best possible – and flawed – version of yourself that you are, you are always going to be stuck… but we all deserve to grow, don’t we? We deserve our happiness. We just have to stop using the wrong scale to measure everything.
