Cassidy’S ADVICE –

Be kind to yourself. Give yourself grace. You don’t have to be perfect; you don’t need to do everything correctly 100% of the time. You can try new things without the fear of not doing it perfectly. When you’re nice to yourself because when you’re nice to yourself you are nice to other people as well.
