Humble acceptance of my inherently flawed nature is important. As rehabilitating perfectionist I know.

Just think of the freedom such an attitude brings! Knowing that even with my best intentions, I might not get life 100% right, it means I am free to try. Trying receives lots of bad rap from self-help writers (and Yoda: “There is no trying, there is only doing.”)

But it’s a lot better simply throwing yourself into life, even with the risk of screwing up, than hanging back, living a half-life because you’re afraid you won’t do it perfectly.
