This quote, by Deborah Day, is all about not being hard on yourself and giving yourself permission to not be perfect–because no one is. While “no one is perfect” is a cliche statement, it’s so easy to forget when it comes ourselves and those around us. Which is why this quote serves as a great reminder to “lighten up”. It reminds us that part of being human is imperfection, which we all share. So let’s accept and embrace it, and give ourselves grace when we do fall short or make mistakes. This is one of the first steps to not only improving our self esteem but also our relationships.
