I have a problem. I am what people call a perfectionist. And my being a perfectionist leads me also to being a procrastinator, especially when it comes to my homework assignments.
I am currently working on something very important and I keep changing and editing and moving things around. Doing and redoing pages and it is absolutely driving me crazy.
And I’m not just a perfectionist when it comes to writing or projects I’m doing, or homework. Nope. I’m a perfectionist when I cook, bake, and when I take pictures. I expect myself to be perfect in every way possible which may be why I have some self esteem issues.
The only thing I credit myself with is that I don’t expect my husband, kids, friends, or family to be perfect. I love them all with everything I have and for who they are. So why do I hold myself at such a higher standard?
This is one of those things I love about myself and hate about myself at the same time. I love that I take my time and make sure that everything I do is done to the best of my ability. But at the same time, I look at myself and see imperfections and….again…self esteem issues…
So how, when you’re a perfectionist, do you strive to not be perfect in everything you do? Anyone who has the answer…please feel free to let me in on the secret 😉
