it’s called being human

Imperfections are all a part of being human. Let it not define the person you are today.

As a self-proclaimed perfectionist, I know what it feels like to be under pressure, whether from someone’s expectations of you, or your own self-critical thoughts of how life should have been.

Trust me, we’ve all been there at some point of life, and many will cross that path when the time comes. How you handle the obstacles is yet to be known, but know that you are not alone in this journey. After all; would your life be half as intriguing without the lessons?

Embrace your imperfections. Face your fears. Be the best version of you as can be.

  1. My teacher told a funny story. She’s also a perfectionist, like me, and she said somebody once told her to stop giving 100%, because her 100% equals 250% of a non-perfectionist. She was told to give about 70% and that that would straighten her out with regards to non-perfectionist’s way of handling things.

    I’ve tried that out for this entire week. I felt so awkward, like I was a fraud, but none of my clients complained. In fact, they all praised me for doing good work (I didn’t tell them I was in it for 70% of my doing).

    We all have our issues and our mistakes, but that’s what makes us interesting.
