Good Enough

" The good enough parent. No child needs an ideal parent. They just need an OK, pretty decent, usually well-intentioned, sometimes grumpy but basically reasonable father or mother. It takes a great deal of bravery and skill to keep even a very ordinary life going. To persevere through the challenges of love, work and children is quite heroic. We should more often sometimes step back in order to acknowledge in a non-starry-eyed but very real way that our lives are good enough - and that this is, in itself, already a very impressive achievement" -The School of Life; An Emotional Education
