I think we tend to focus more on everything we do wrong. We count the number of times we fall down, but not the number of times we get back up. I don't believe you fail until you give up on yourself. So long as you get back up and try again. Or try in a new way. Or at least strive to become better, that it is an accomplishment. It takes a lotta guts to put yourself in a position where you Can fail even. And there is a lot to be proud of for taking the chance

The thing is I'm never good enough. I'm always trying to better at everything and I feel ugly when I fail. I feel I'm have to do everything to perfection.

Who is it you feel you have to be perfect for?

Just people I guess. Maybe myself. Maybe everyone. I just feel I have to be generally perfect.

I've noticed you are very helpful and compassionate just on the forums. I would bet you are a very caring person in real life as well. That is a good quality. It is hard feeling inadequate. And I know I am probably not helping. But I do hope you can find that peace within yourself and see that you are good enough. You are human. And that you have beauty inside you. Everyone does. Sometimes it is just harder for us to see it in ourselves. Especially when we hold the pressure of unattainable perfection.

Thank you, you are helpful. I know I need to learn how to be happy with what I can be. I'll find my way. It's just so hard right now. Thank you for talking though. It's nice to know people care. Thank you <3
