I found a quote some time ago and just now it really made me start to think about why I kept it in my phone. The quote is between two people talking, and it states:
“What’s the most important thing you’ve done this year?”, and the second person replied with the words, “I survived”.
You did your best. If your best is going one day without eating that chocolate you know you shouldn’t be, spending an hour without biting your nails, or being able to say you haven’t cut yourself since Monday, then you should be proud. If your best is being drug-free for a whole year, exercising for an hour everyday, or following your eating limitations every single day, then you should be proud. Whether your best is or isn’t someone else’s best means nothing. Our standards should never be based on another person because no two people are the same. There’s no issue with the situation if you know you’re doing your best, but if you can, always strive to. Don’t overdo yourself, but show your issues who’s the boss and you’ll see just how strong you really are.
ps. I still reaaaaalllyyyy love you.
