There is no such thing as perfect.
For so long, I wanted everything to be perfect. My work had to be perfect. My appearance had to be perfect (and I don’t even know what this means now!). My relationships had to be perfect. My parenting had to be perfect. I had to be perfect in every single way.
I felt like I wasn’t enough, so I dreamt of being enough. I wanted to be perfect so badly because then I would be ‘enough’. I pushed myself to breaking point and at the time, I never understood why it was so f*cking hard.
But now I know it’s because there is no such thing as perfect.
If you are stuck in this cycle as well, then I’m sending my love because I know it can be tough! You also don’t need to figure it out on your own, please reach out if this is something you would like to work on.
