Do you strive to be perfect? Never feeling fully satisfied with where things are now? Do you think you are not good enough, think of yourself as a loser?
If you want to be the most, the first and the best of all…Stop it! Perfectionism is destroying you.
Perfectionists are highly critical of others and themselves. They strive to achieve their best performance and goals in everything they do. What they can’t accept in themselves is something they reject in others.
They try to please others with their performance. And although it encourages them to excel, it also instills a fear of failure.
If you strive to be perfect, you tend to compare yourself with others and often try to demean them.
People try hard to have their lives look perfect in order to mask massive underlying issues.
Perfectionists, despite being wealthy, healthy, famous, and gorgeous, are unhappy.
They dismiss the good in their lives while concentrating on the bad. Although they work hard, strive to get everything done meticulously, they are people who are supposed to be successful and happy, they mostly are not. Other people consider them successful, but perfectionists see themselves as failures, and they are not quite happy.
Perfectionism makes you stay home, not take chances, and procrastinate on projects; it makes you think your life is worse than it is; it keeps you from being yourself; it stresses you out; it tells you that good is bad.
So let’s give up perfectionism and start living a happy life!
