Dear stressed out perfectionist: Remember these things

Hey Perfectionist!

How are you today? Did you jump out of bed and perfectly make your bed…and then take a perfect shower and eat the perfect breakfast? 

Of course you did. You wouldn’t be you if you didn’t.

Well, I’m a retired perfectionist. I gave that up after teaching middle school and having my first child. *smiles*

Here are a few things I think we should try to remember when we feel…ahem…perfectly overwhelmed.

SOMETIMES PERFECTION IS BORING

Consider this. Think of a time your life felt as close to perfection as possible. How long did it take before you were bored out of your mind?

More or less than one second?

NO ONE IS LOOKING AT YOU AS MUCH AS YOU THINK THEY ARE

Your chase for perfection isn’t worth it unless its making YOU HAPPY.

Why?

Because no one else really cares. I don’t say this to be cynical. I say it to remind us that our quest for flawlessness is more so about our own dissatisfaction within ourselves, than anything or anyone else.

Others don’t have enough time to be focused on you 24/7.

FAILURE IS MOSTLY PERCEPTION. SO IS PERFECTION. 

This means you can CHOOSE to view your imperfect life/body/etc, as a perfect enough version FOR YOU. RIGHT NOW.

Nothing is static, and things change.

It is in our best interest to accept where we are, while simultaneously working towards our growth and development.

It’s a delicate balance, but necessary for sanity!

Love,

NIA VENUS 💋


SPEAKING OF PERFECTIONISM, look out for my next novel, AI WANT FOR CHRISTMAS.
