Maybe humans have always been perfectionists, but perfectionism has no doubt gained momentum in our fast-paced age.
The belief that others are perfect, and so we should be and this is the biggest reasons why so many of us are so miserable 🙆 #.
We think we are the only ones who can’t seem to get their stuff together. Of course, this isn’t true - people do hide the messy parts of their lives because they are trying to appear perfect too 💆!
The truth is, you aren’t perfect, and you never will be. No one can be. It’s impossible.
We each have our strengths and weaknesses that make us a unique combination.
Perfectionism is a monster that wears down our self-worth at every turn. It keeps us so busy with mindless activities that we never have time for self-reflection and self-care.
So what can we do to bring a change?
How can we better ourselves to not make things strange?
We need to start to break the perfection habit 🙅♀️ .
Recalibrate your expectations and embrace imperfection!
