Maybe I’m the one who sets such a high standard for myself, but why shouldn’t I? I want to be successful and I know to be successful I have to work hard. I also know that I have a lot of pressure from other places that make me feel like I have to be perfect.
I am not perfect. When I fall, I crash and burn but I always get back up. I know people may think I’m “perfect” and that everything in my life must come so easy.
That assumption is wrong. I work very hard everyday to be where I am at in life and I will not allow the thoughts of others degrade that work.
This life isn’t easy and I have learned that first hand. I have also learned though, that life is what you make it. I may only be human and I have human flaws but I make them with a smile on my face.
I embrace my mistakes and my flaws because those are what make me, me. I think one of the hardest things as a woman is to accept myself as I am.
Society likes to try and tell us what we should be, what we should consider beautiful, smart and kind but we are the ones who get to decide that.
I am the one who looks myself in the mirror everyday and points out that I am unique, I am different and I am going to go out into the world to try and make a difference.
I have learned that appreciating who I am is one of the most important things to being able to be happy in life. I have to love everything about myself.
But that doesn’t mean I can’t want to improve things.
I think women have to remember that we can still love who we are and still want to make improvements without that effecting what we think of ourselves. Because again, no one is perfect but we are perfect in someone else’s eyes.
We are loved and we are important and even though we may fall down sometimes there are so many people who love us and support us.
I am only human and I do bleed when I fall down but I will never let it effect how I feel about myself ever again.
