NOTE: I wrote this short post in 2017. Since then, I have become aware of some comments made by J K Rowling that are disrespectful to transgender individuals. That’s a big deal to me. I vehemently disagree with her AND (not but) I also love some of her novels and she serves as a great example of the point this post was trying to make. Despite her shortcomings, I have decided that I’m still going to love the books she wrote. It turns out she’s imperfect. So am I. Her quote is no less true – in fact it may prove her point perfectly.
Offer the best support you can to another person today. Do your best job supporting or assisting another person today. You won’t be perfect. (SPOILER ALERT! – People aren’t perfect.) But showing up and showing you care can change the world. So look around. There is someone in your midst who will appreciate your imperfect support or assistance. You’ll feel great and they will too. Bring your brilliantly flawed self to the game and make it better today! Nobody needs to be perfect in order to help.
“Perfection is not necessary to make a real and lasting difference to other people’s lives.”
– J K Rowling
