We Make the Road by Walking Chapter 44   J ust reading this chapter this week was hard for me. No matter how many years pass by, no matter the books or blogs I have read, no matter how far I think I get at resisting the downward spiral of perfectionism and comparison — I find this idea that there is a healthy and mature way of loving myself is still so hard for me to grasp. But the Spirit teaches us a profoundly different...
