I read these articles the other day and really wanted to share them …
I also thought it was a good follow-up to yesterday’s post dealing with being imperfect and fighting my negative inner voice.
With my education, book knowledge, and experience … I am still human and continue to battle with wanting to prove myself to others and find peace within myself, imperfections and all. I am not a perfect person, mother, wife, daughter, sister, friend, or therapist. But I am me … and I try my hardest to stay true to that.
My FAVORITE quote from Amy’s article is, “We need to stop comparing our insides to others’ outsides.” Really think about that. How many times do we compare ourselves to others when all we really know about them is the pretty picture they show to the rest of the world … just to cover up that they feel imperfect too?
I think it’s time for me to make another painting … this time, with that quote!
