Striving for Perfection is, by its very definition, impossible.
Although going to sleep hungry may be uncomfortable, sleeping on a full stomach is a much worse idea.
- Fact: Nowadays we know so much more about how other people are doing in life.
- Instagram, Pinterest, SnapChat, Facebook
- An unrelenting exposure to people more ‘perfect’ than U in a multitude of ways.
- Self-oriented perfectionists attach irrational importance to being perfect, hold unrealistic expectations and are punitive in self-evaluations.
- Socially prescribed Perfectionism is when it’s perceived to come from others, so they feel as though others judge them harshly and they must display perfection to secure approval.
- Other-oriented Perfectionism is when a person expects perfectionism from others around them, evaluating them and imposing unrealistic standards.
- By striving for Perfectionism, U are attempting to avoid the reality of your imperfections and that’s not just unrealistic, it’s unhealthy.
- If U are constantly striving for it, U are trying to avoid something that really bothers U – and that’s imperfection – so your attitude towards yourself, that U are imperfect, is what drives U to try and be perfect.
- Use imperfections to harness your great strengths and become the best version of U, physically and emotionally!
That’s as perfect as U will ever get – and that’s alright!
