"I here by free myself. I say goodbye to the agony that I feel because I can’t always be perfect, impeccably organized, meticulously punctual, and perennially smiling. The reality is I’m not going to be like that. And when I try, I just end up falling apart and getting angry at myself. It seems to me that if I try a little bit less, things will work out a lot better, and everyone will benefit. Especially me".
