The Perfect life
If perfection is your goal, every little mishap will impede on that goal. Every infliction of suffering will put another crack in the perfect life of your dreams. It's elusive, yet you press on. The bitterness of unforgiveness settles deep into your bones.
Give up perfection. Jesus accepted things as they were, meeting people right here. He didn't examine points in the past where mistakes were made. He addressed the now. He directed future steps "sin no more".
Look at your expectation. Are they real? I find for me that my expectations for me are harsh compared to what I seek from others. Let go of expectations. I'm coming to see how it causes me to try to do God's work and I can't. Failure is imminent.
