I am so glad I saw this. Perfectionism is exhausting and it takes away so much energy that should be used to just be happy and content with who we are. I can identify with Amy also. If only she could know that she is the best already.
I often think of people I have known who are doom and gloom. Nothing positive do they ever see. It has become a self-professng prophecy for them. When I surround myself with positive thoughts and people my life is so much better in the way I see everything.
kindness has become apart of me.It is how I treat every day I am out in public. I try to engage others in conversation or just with a smile. I believe God has helped me find a purpose. I get so much in return.
I remember being at a transcendental meditation seminar with 35 others "strangers" sitting around the table together. We were asked to meditate and during my meditation I was unaware of the presence of anyone else until I opened my eyes. Thoughts come and go randomly at first and then there is the silence. It is wonderful.
