There are times when I am so hard on myself and other and my loving husband just appreciates me and reminds me that perfect is good but we will get there when Christ presents us as blameless blemish less to the father. Until then I have to strive hard, yes, but also be satisfied in the fact that I have tried to give my best and that I am better today than I was yesterday.
So I have made a choice to appreciate even the slightest positive that I see in people. It is tough especially for a person like me but I will do it since it is required and necessary. After all we are human beings yearning for love and appreciation.
