While I'm on this earth, I'm going to make the most of it. With this beautiful guy by my side it's going to be even more great and that much more of an adventure. Don't get me wrong: a fruitful, constructive and fun relationship is hard work. But when you're both willing to put in that work, compromise on small things (not on your dreams!), build together and lift each other up, it can be the best relationship for you to be in. Really, it's still possible. Don't let all the negativity get the best of you. Life is hard. Facts. But even when it seems like the circumstances are causing chaos, you can be the calmth within the storm.
Furthermore, the grass always looks greener on the other side. Trust me, it's not!
Perfection....something we all seem to strive for in life, one way or another. But we should ask ourselves ‘does perfection even exist ‘?! I am asked on a regular basis by my Mum ‘why are you trying to be perfect all the time? It’s not possible!’ The thing is, I know it doesn’t exist. I’m not constantly striving for it. It’s just a subconscious ‘I need to be the best I can be’ kinda feeling. A lot of people will go through life following this feeling - putting obscure amounts of pressure on themselves, never feeling enough or worthy, constantly being disappointed; when in reality we are just setting ourselves up for failure by setting our own unrealistic targets. The only pressure comes from ourselves because of what we believe to be ‘acceptable’. Next time you are beating yourself up over something you did that you thought you could have done better....stop and think, what would I be telling my best friend if this was them? Bet you wouldn’t be telling them no one will ever love them because their fat and can’t even fit into those jeans! And I bet you won’t tell them they f*cked up that presentation big time and you deffo think they will get fired and everyone in the office is laughing at them behind their back! Cut yourself some slack. Treat yourself how you would treat others plus even more compassion. At the end of the day you are with you for the rest of your life so you may as well treat yourself well. #positiveinstinct#edwarriors#mentalhealth#perfectionism#perfectionist#loveyourself#nothingisperfect#happinessispossible#anorexiarecovery#edrecovery#whatwouldyoudo#bekindtoyourself#selflove#striveforit#depression#anxiety#selfhelp#motivation#motivationmonday
