Things I need to tell myself
when I'm down:
1. Don't compare yourself to others. Everyone is struggling with something just as much as you are, so don't worry about it.
2. DO be IMPERFECT. On purpose. Break that habit of trying to meet every goal 100% of the time, accep... Read more
I just need to write right now
