A tree is no less perfect because it is a seedling. A tiny infant is no less perfect than a grown-up. It is perfection itself. Because it cannot do a thing, does not know a thing, that does not make it somehow less perfect.
Read more about self-esteem from Neale Donald Walsch’s Conversations with God:
A child makes mistakes. She stands. She toddles.
She falls. She stands again, a bit wobbly, hanging on to
Her mommy’s leg. Does that make the child imperfect?
I tell you it is just the opposite! The child is perfection
itself, wholly and completely adorable.
So, too, are you.
