We Need to Forgive Ourselves and Everyone Else for Not Being Perfect – Linda Masemore Pirrung

No one likes to make mistakes or find themselves regretting their actions. While many of us know that learning from our errors can be beneficial, that doesn’t mean that we’re happy when they take place. Simply put, no one is perfect. There will be times when we all do things that we wish we could take back.

We need to forgive ourselves for not being perfect. While not being able to obtain perfection should never be an excuse for not trying our hardest, accepting our humanity often helps us focus on what’s truly important: getting up when we fall and continuing on towards success.

There is nothing wrong with getting upset with ourselves when we don’t achieve our goals. In fact, sometimes we need to get a little angry in order to push ourselves. Being too hard on ourselves, however, can discourage us from having faith in overcoming our obstacles – which is the last thing we can afford.

The next time you make a mistake or wish you had made a better choice, remember that you will have other opportunities to do what’s right. There will be other chances for you to face your fears and stand up to your obstacles. Don’t lose hope in yourself.

About B.G.

Hi. I enjoy writing and sharing my experiences with others. For many years, I have struggled with anxiety and know how difficult it is to deal with something so seemingly limiting. My hobbies include: writing, reading, watching TV, and working hard to get through my anxiety. I hope that through my writing I can help others realize that they are not alone in their struggles and that they can overcome their obstacles! I currently have blogs at www.gettingthroughanxiety.wordpress.com and www.restinpieceblog.wordpress.com - In addition, I am the author of the fantasy-horror novel, Rest in Piece and short story collection, Abstract Clarity.

  1. I needed this message today. thank you again for your kind inspiring words.

  2. No one will make a mistake if they knew it was a mistake. This is because as human beings none of us are prefect. We have to take risks in order to move on in life. Some work well. Some don’t and, then they become mistakes. So mistakes are part and parcel of life and when people understand this it is easy to forgive. All what happens are challenges which is necessary for us to learn our lessons in life, and by overcoming and learning we go on to the next level. Thankyou for your article 🙂 <3

  3. I needed this message. I’ve been trying not to beat myself up, but I’ve realized I get nothing from doing that but more guilt and pain and tears. Thank you for these words. 🙏🏼
