He is right -- and I am frequently disappointed and frustrated.
I expect a lot (I'm not sure it's too much) from others and I expect a lot (again, I'm not sure it's too much) from myself.
With high expectations it is difficult to forgive -- myself and, unfortunately, others as well.
How long will it take me to learn to cut everyone -- including myself -- some slack?
Inspired by Ima on (and off) the Bima, this #BlogElul post is one in a series marking the days of the Hebrew month of Elul, which precedes the Jewish High Holidays and traditionally serves as a time of reflection and spiritual preparation for the new year.
