Escaping the Grip of Shame

Escaping the Grip of Shame

I’m not perfect. And though that would seem obvious, I’ve spent a lifetime trying to do everything right. From my hair to my grades in school, everything always had to be in place. I tried to make sure I never had to be corrected because I simply couldn’t handle it. I have wasted time pursuing the impossible and in the moments when I have failed, I realize that I still carry the shame that comes with not living up to your own hype.
