  • Your best is all you can do, and after that you need to ignore other people who think that you should be doing more. You know what your best is, and that's all that can be expected out of a person.

  • You just keep moving on, and do what you gotta do for yourself, don't worry what others think. If you feel good with what you've done, then its right, but what others have to say - doesn't matter, we only choose to make it matter

  • It depends on who doesn't think it's good enough--if it's someone whose opinion I value, then I listen and am willing to reflect on whether there's any truth to it. If there is, then I'm willing to dig a little deeper to make sure I'm giving it my all. Same goes if it's myself who is questioning if I'm giving all I can. Complacency is not something I tolerate in my own life. But if it's a situation that I KNOW I've done all I can, then I am content with that regardless of what someone else may think.

  • I think for me I just needed to accept that sometimes someone else is better in certain areas and my best is not always good enough but I just keep striving and trying and learning more for my childs sake.. we are all good at some things and not so great at others.. that's why friends and relationships are important in life.

  • My best is always good enough.........for me.....

    There is nothing better to give, than my best. Therefore giving my best is always good enough for me personally. If it isn't for someone else. That's on them and their issue. Not mine. As Long as I'm doing/giving my best, that's all that I can ask of myself.
