"It's difficult to be around people who are trying to be perfect - perfectly healthy, perfectly polite, perfectly poised, perfectly controlled.
Remember that human means being imperfect, being flawed. Let yourself be. Slouch in your chair. Eat with the wrong fork. Laugh our loud. Stand up and revel in who you are and know that you're good enough.
Stop worrying that people will find out who you really are. Instead, hope that they do. Help them by openly sharing yourself and being not who you think you should be, but who you really are."
"Freedom is just a small step away- a step
into self-love and acceptance. When you take
it, others will follow. And they'll be grateful
you led the way."
~Melody Beattie, Journey to the Heart
