Mistakes are imperative if we hope to evolve and learn. However, it’s self-defeating when we don’t admit our mistakes and instead make excuses or deny what happened to uphold a false image. Readily acknowledging errors and apologizing for them has a much better outcome than pretending we’re perfect. When we love ourselves enough to take responsibility for everything we do, people respond to our authenticity with appreciation, compassion and understanding because it helps them admit their own imperfections with compassion and self-love. No one is perfect; no matter how it may appear, we’re all doing..

The best we can.
