Allowing yourself to be human

"Aim for success, not perfection. Never give up your right to be wrong, because then you will lose the ability to learn new things and move forward with your life. Remember that fear always lurks behind perfectionism. Confronting your fears and allowing yourself the right to be human can, paradoxically, make yourself a happier and more productive person." -Dr. David M. Burns (Source)

I came across this quote on my friend Dana's Facebook page, and just LOVED it.  Great food for thought on this lovely debate night (with a glass of Pinot Noir, of course).


  1. This is such a great quote - for me, I feel like it gives me the freedom to let go of trying to be perfect and letting my fears get in the way, and realizing that I'm truly ok and am trying hard enough... Does that make sense?! It's early and I've only had a few sips of my coffee, haha

  2. YES! Totally makes sense. Happy that you liked it! I did too.
