Addicted to Perfectionism

Having worked through my own perfectionist tendencies, I can say that I was addicted to being a perfectionist. Because I thought that I had to be perfect in order to be accepted, happy and fulfilled. I didn’t trust or believe in myself otherwise.


But then I realized it was all my fear talking. Wanting things to be perfect so that no one could judge, critique or reject me. But people still did and do. They always will. That's what we all do as humans, you know 😅 And we have zero control over what someone else thinks or says or does.


When I think about all the time I spent checking every last detail, how much more time I could have gained doing something else instead! Something more fun, relaxing, nourishing, exciting, fulfilling...


So for all my fellow perfectionists out there, I encourage you to...


Just take action. Set a timer and pencils down when the alarm goes off. Put it out there. It's OK to “fail”. That's how you learn and grow. If you are constantly waiting for permission or for every single thing to be perfect, you are never going to get where you want to go. Not everyone will appreciate it but it's okay. You're not here for everyone. You're here for YOUR people. I got you. Tell me ⬇️ how you’re going to take action!! 👍
