“Life is composed of lights and shadows, and we would be untruthful, insincere, and saccharine if we tried to pretend there were no shadows.” Walt Disney, Deeds Rather Than Words (1963)
It stings for sure when someone says “You’re not perfect!” – to be clear I believe this is a perfectly good and kind for them to do.
I want to wear my faults loudly.
Be around people who are able to speak loudly about my problems and their own problems too. (Not in a pity party kind of way. In a ’Hey that’s so cool!’ kind of way.)
You’re right there are some flaws in the way I behave!! That’s not the worst thing in the world. If I’m aware of it, there’s the potential for the lesson to reveal itself.
There’s nothing duller than a day without enough risks that didn’t pay off.
