Barbara De Angelis
You will never be thoroughly congruent with all your values because they clash half the time.
You will never have a relationship that you “deserve” because for it to work the way you imagine it you have to put the relationship in the center, not yourself (i.e. not your values, truths and wishes).
You will not always be able to ask for what you want, nor to speak the truth. Because sometimes that’s for the better.
Being OK with your imperfection and the imperfection of others, not crushing yourself when you fail to live up to your ideal self… is more important than desiring perfection, and it is attainable.
