I'm an impatient person. I want it done 600% right, and I want it done yesterday.
But I've had to learn that I can't work like that. I can only do what I can do, and it's much better to work slow and steady.
We have a tendency to go way easier on other people than we do on ourselves (me? talk about myself? Ha ha ha... look a distraction!!)
So I think it's time we reminded ourselves that it's ok to not do EVERYTHING - as long as you're doing something.
However small your 'something' may be - that's an achievement.
Believe me - I've been there. Depression etc. sucks hard. I want you to reward your own effort, ok?
So if your 'something' is climbing Everest, fine. But if your 'something' is even considering getting out of bed in the morning - then that's as f**king good as any piece of rock to stand on!
'Would You Destroy Something Perfect, In Order To Make It Beautiful?'
I like to use this My Chemical Romance/Gerard Way quote (which is, in itself, so beautiful,) to remind myself that sometimes it's the imperfect stuff that makes life so special.
I need to stop striving for perfection, and head for beautiful instead. Because perfection is incidental.
I think that's true of everything: perfection is incidental.
What matters is working, slowly and steadily, and figuring out that going easy on yourself isn't such a bad thing after all.
I know it sounds cheesy and oh-so cliché, but it really isn't about the destination - it's about the steps along the way.
So, this was a bit of a ramble - but hopefully you got my point: go easy on yourself. You'll end up getting more done in the long-run.
