It's OK Not to be Perfect


None of us is perfect - and that's OK.
Life is not about perfection - or a quest for perfection.
Life is about enjoying what we have - for as long as we have it.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

When you finally accept that it's OK not to have answers
and it's OK not to be perfect,
you realize that feeling confused
is a normal part of what it is to be a human being.
- Winona Ryder

Perfectionism is not a quest for the best.
It is a pursuit of the worst in ourselves,
the part that tells us that nothing we do will ever be good enough.
- Julia Cameron

Don't let perfectionism become an excuse for never getting started.
- Marilu Henner


Generally, your greatest service to someone in their time of trouble, sorrow, or confusion, is your comfort. Take the time to listen to their troubles and concerns with patience, kindness, and empathy, but without offering unsolicited advice or suggestions. Your kindly hand on their shoulder, supportive hug, and patient listening are often the greatest gifts you can offer.
