Being beautifully flawed

You may be surprised to know that what you think of yourself is far from true. Do you vacillate between building yourself up and tearing yourself down?
The truth is that you are loveable, beautiful, and gifted, just as you are. Although it's helpful to make improvements on yourself in whatever way you choose to, the most important goal is to formulate a kind, loving relationship with yourself right now. There's nothing you need to do to earn love. There is nothing you need to hide from others. We are all designed to be beautifully flawed...

"Awakeness is found in our pleasure and our pain, our confusion and our wisdom, available in each moment...the point is to lean toward the discomfort of life and see is clearly rather than to protect ourselves from it." Pema Chodron
