Allow yourself to fail.
Those are tough words for moms to swallow. We don’t want to fail. We expect ourselves to be perfect!
Nobody is perfect. God certainly doesn’t expect us to be perfect. He tells us to “come as you are.” So where do we get these expectations? And why do we place them on ourselves?
It is a freeing feeling to let some of these demands go. It can be a learning and growing experience to give yourself permission to make mistakes and to fail. Allow yourself that freedom! Don’t hold yourself to a higher standard that is impossible to meet.
