Love this quote from the really inspiring Davina McCall’s new book ‘Lessons I’ve Learned’ – making me very tempted to buy the whole book and she clearly has a lot of wisdom to share!

Setting yourself overly high standards is one thing that can be destructive to your wellbeing, expecting other people in your life to be perfect is even more harming. The more you can learn to accept others’ flaws and imperfections, the easier it will come to accept your own. So next time you go to criticise or moan about a loved one, give them and yourself a break!
