Day 29 - Letting Go of Perfection - 31 Days of Keeping Your Head Above Water
Perfectionism can be a trap that many women fall into. It is a great way to continue drowning. Sometimes we as women put unnecessary pressure on ourselves. We expect perfection, when perfection isn't possible. We fear failure. We fear mediocrity. Trying to be perfect keeps us from being real. It keeps us from living our lives.
We need to remind ourselves daily that perfection isn't our goal. In pursuit of it, we end up missing out on all the important things of life. Perfectionism can have negative effects on our closest relationships.
Let go of perfectionism. Allow yourself to fail. Remember that failure is part of growth. Our lives can be full and beautiful without being perfect. Don't hold yourself to impossible standards. If you can allow yourself to be less than perfect, you will be much closer to keeping your head above water.
