  9. There’s nothing wrong with being a work in progress.

    Someone said this to me today, and I’m trying to believe it! I know it’s completely true, but as someone who feels like a failure or not good enough a lot of the time, it’s really hard for me to accept that it’s okay to not be the perfect, finished product.

    I want to skip ahead to the part where I feel confident and in control. But life isn’t like that unfortunately… We have to jump into unfamiliar waters, risking the possibility that we may struggle to stay afloat, or even drown. To add even more fear, someone may see that we didn’t immediately succeed.

    But it is through these scary and uncomfortable experiences that we truly begin to learn. I absolutely hate feeling like I can’t do something well, but whether things go completely to plan or I stumble a little, I will have learned something.

    Something else to consider in these situations is that no one ever really becomes the finished article, the perfect version of themselves. There are simply too many possibilities and opportunities to sit back and say “I’m done!!!”. You can always try new things and learn a new skill.

    But the bottom line is that as much as I feel like I can improve, every so often it’s essential to look back at how far I have come. So for anyone else who feels like me sometimes, take some time to be proud!
