I found this article very helpful today. Just what I needed to hear. Link below but here are some great highlights.
- You have a right to be who you are and to live your own life harmlessly, even if others don’t like it.
- You don’t have to feel guilty for not behaving as others might want you to, or for not giving others what they expect of you.
- You have a right to your imperfections and shortcomings. Do not feel guilty for being imperfect!
- You are completely acceptable just as you are right at this moment, with whatever sensations, thoughts, and feelings you’re experiencing.
