All the things I should be …

My best friend says I am too hard on myself.

I’m starting to realize that he’s right.

I am critical of everything I do. I should be further along with my therapy. I should be able to run for longer than I can on the treadmill. I should be able to manage tree pose in yoga without wobbling.I should be able to get my dog to do everything I say. I should be better artist. I should be thinner. I should be more decisive. I should be less emotional. I should have made better decisions in my life. I should stop moping.  I should, I should, I should …

What if that’s all bollocks?

What if I should be just as I am?

(And if you have any of those same thoughts, what if you should be just as you are?)
