Do You Struggle with Being a Perfectionist?

Perfectionism can be a hard habit to break. You think if you can just get a little better or a little more perfect, then you’ll finally be happy and you can stop trying so hard and everything will be ok.

But what you don’t realize is that once you get to the new standard of perfection, you’re only going to push yourself to get to a new unobtainable level.

Perfectionism isn’t really about improving yourself and your life, it’s about feeling like you’re not good enough and that you’ll never be good enough and trying to measure up to some imaginary standard that you’ll never reach.

But you are good enough, right now, just the way you are.

Let go of the striving. Happiness and inner peace will not come when you’ve perfected everything in your life; rather, if you’re happy and peaceful now, then everything in your life will seem perfect (at least to you).

It’s the exact opposite of what you think.

You have to start with the inner work, and then the outer stuff will all resolve itself.

No perfectionism needed.
