This isn’t technically a writing Tip, or a blogging tip, or a college writing Tip, so who knows how I’m going to categorize this, but I still felt it was necessary to share.
So often, we are ready to extend our kindness, sympathy, and understanding to others and yet, we neglect ourselves. We expect ourselves to be perfect, never tiring, as we attempt to meet the various expectations we have set for ourselves.
Why are we so gracious with others and not with ourselves? For instance, my mind is strong but my body is sometimes weak. And I have to be okay with that. I have to give myself grace and know that sometimes I can’t be Wonder Woman. I can’t do everything I want to do. Some days I can accomplish all of the items on my “to-do” list, other days it’s half, some days, I can’t do anything.
But you know what? I’m okay with it because I’m learning to give myself as much grace as I give others.
I hope you all will learn to give yourselves the grace you deserve.
