Recovery from people pleasing and perfectionism means welcoming in my own humanness and the humanness of those around me. It means leaning into creating and throwing things against the wall to see what may stick. It means not quite knowing what the future holds but having fun exploring the next chapter. It means letting myself cry, and no longer apologizing for it or for my children’s big emotions. It means letting go of people and places and things that no longer align, instead of hanging on because I fear my own ego’s whisper of failure. It means letting myself feel uncomfortable, while watching those around me feel their own discomfort.
I’m learning that imperfections aren’t in the way of me growing + enjoying my life, me trying to manage them is.
What are you no longer apologizing for?
