Moving on from perfection

I’m following my path. I am putting my self-care above all else. Whatever gets done after that self-care gets done. In other words, what will be will be beyond my happiness. My therapist, my best friends, and the books I’m reading are all telling me that I need to focus on myself and my happiness over everything. So I’m going to stop killing myself trying to be perfect at school, and I’m going to focus on doing what I love.

I’m frankly miserable trying to do everything at once, so I’m going to take one day at a time and just live the life I want – a life of love, good exercise, video games, great books, and thrift stores.
