Being a perfectionist is like living your life, whilst holding your breath. Whether it’s conscious or not, you inhale & immediately begin concentrating so deeply on being perfect, that you forget to exhale. You walk on eggshells & tip-toe around the spilled yokes called “mistakes”; often times so others won’t see you for what you are…
Yes, I have to break it to you.
You ARE human.
Do you know what we humans do?
Inhale deeply, right now, and slowly release the carbon dioxide. Close your eyes & do it again. Let go of the self-pressuring stress.
Doesn’t that feel better?
No human has it all together like you imagine, even if it appears that they do. We are all capable of committing mistakes…capable of causing problems…capable of getting & doing it wrong; often times, we do.
It really is.
