“Human, no more, no less. Human, like me.”
The more I am learning to notice, slow down, and engage in activities that empower me, the more I remember this beautiful quote by Dr. Eger. It touches on multiple themes including perfectionism, forgiveness, blame, and responsibility. I find myself repeating this mantra for family and strangers alike. When the driver in front of me clearly doesn’t see the light change to green or the kids are absolutely insane, Human, no more, no less. Human, like me. It is just the reminder I need to slow down, take a breath, and remind myself we are all human. To embrace the people around me for everything that makes them just as human, and imperfect, as me.
