A common myth of proper health is the obligation to always be “good.” Being “good” can mean different things for
different people, but it usually translates to following the rules, being a “good” person/parent/friend by putting
everyone before you, conforming to societal norms and behaviors, and doing everything perfectly. This impulse to
be “good” can get in the way of focusing on wants and needs, and can lead to a lack of fulfillment.
