We hold ideals about ourselves; the way we should look, the money we should earn, the things we should have done. We hold ideals about people; how they should look, what they should say, what boxes they must tick before we can even contemplate any romantic interest.

But what’s wrong with Ideals?

They are simply that – an Ideal that we or anyone else cannot live up to. The ideals we set for ourselves turn us into hypocrites. The ideals we place on others are unfair and usually projections of own unhappiness and insecurities.

No more ideals. Accept yourself and others as they are and you’ll find things will work out fine as they are.
