A little post for the perfectionist in ourselves.
"I have to be able to do this, on my own"
A thought fueled by the need for autonomy
Fueled by perfection
In our minds
Sometimes we think we should be able to do things “alone”
And, sometimes, we think that too much
Which makes life a little harder
So, here is a different light
Just a different thought
"We don't have to do anything alone"
Because we are always dependent on other/s
We either can't see or we don't want to see this
But if you think about it, it will surprise you
And maybe scare you
Dependency can have a huge impact on your quality of life.
But hey, we are
Let's make this thought a bit more balanced
"I would like help from others, but just as happy to help them"
We're helping, and being helped
Caring and being cared for
It sounds different, natural
