I've learnt that people shine the brightest when they are most genuine, and that it's ok to have aspects that are not the most favourable, as long as we face up to them and constantly work to be better.
So often we expect perfection from others and ourselves, when we know that it's not possible. Our flawed expectations make us judge others harshly, and we punish ourselves as well, and that creates so much tension and pain.
Perhaps for every time we feel resentful, upset or disappointed, it's a good time to reevaluate our expectations, be kinder to our own selves and each other, and continue to support and encourage each other to be better versions of ourselves. Perhaps it'll also be a good time to decide that something no longer works and if it's expectations or circumstances & relationships that need to be changed. - Dec 2016.
I wrote this a year ago and as I was doing my reflections this morning, I stumbled upon it again. I'm glad that we are all works in progress and the option to be better is always, always open. #thetudungtravels
