Since as long as I can remember I have had an issue with perfectionism. It is paralyzing at times. My mind tells me "if you can't do it perfectly why even try" it has stopped me from many things in my life. Lately I have realized that there is no perfect-there just isn't. what there is are a lot of people just doing their best. And doing your best is flipping perfect! It is!
I don't know where this perfect bullshit came from, but that's exactly what it is-bullshit. When I walk around thinking I have to be perfect, then I find myself holding people to that same standard. And who am I to hold anyone to any kind of standard, especially an unobtainable one!
Note to self: Emily-your best is good enough!
