Giving Up on Half-Empty Glasses

I often wonder if people knows what it feels like to live in a world where nothing is ever good enough.
A world where the grass always appear greener on the other side. This constant unsatisfying desire for more,  a flaw picking monster.
It's the reason I'll remove all my freshly done nails if I get a little nick in one tiny little corner.
It's the reason I'll break down into sobs and tears if I get a B.
It's the reason I'll leave a relationship when they make one mere mistake.
It's my unreasonable search for perfection. This delusional flawless world I've created in my head, and my obsession to match it with reality.

Well I'm giving up on half-empty glasses. No more of this nonsensical dreaming, it's time I start appreciating all I've been given, all I've been blessed with....
a functioning body
a peaceful mind 
a loyal family
a compassionate boyfriend
supportive friends
a thriving community
an education
and much more...
