Don’t be so hard on yourself! These 11 comics give the pep talk you need right now.

I have a confession: I get anxiety when I check social media.

People post about getting married, having babies, taking lavish vacations, and solving world hunger. Meanwhile, I’m barely maintaining it together.

I have to remind myself that people don’t show their full selves on social media. It’s merely their “greatest hits.”

Lots of people pretend to be someone they’re not.

Like a “social media influencer.”

Or a “Bitcoin guru.”

But truth is , not everyone crushes their goals all the time.

Even the seemingly most successful people struggle. And you can overcome any challenge if you maintain three simple things in mind.

1. Don’t let pride get in your way.

2. Ask for help.

3. Above all: Don’t be so hard on yourself!

You don’t need to be perfect to be happy.

You don’t need to have all the answers.

Even people who rose don’t have it all figured out.

Life is constantly under construction. Failing isn’t a detour. It’s a rite of passage.
