I’ve got a dear friend who is really struggling with self-acceptance. He’s one of those people who embodies that tragic combination of “perfectionist” and “realist”… in other words, he strives to be the “perfect” person he thinks he should be, while being realistic enough to know it will never really happen. Hence, the dilemma… how does one accept oneself, knowing perfection is unattainable?
I’ll give you more of my thoughts on this tomorrow. In the meantime, how do YOU cope with this dilemma?
