I’m a recovering perfectionist. I say “recovering” because overcoming perfectionism is a huge undertaking that is ongoing and probably lifelong. I’m a work in progress, and I’m making my peace with that.
However, it’s worth noting that even though I’ve come a long way in letting go of perfectionism, the perfectionist in me still emerges every day. Recovering from perfectionism is like playing whack-a-mole with yourself. You’ve got to beat that perfectionist into submission!
A lot of people don’t realize what being a perfectionist looks like in day-to-day life, or how difficult overcoming perfectionism can be. Here are a few of my confessions as a recovering perfectionist.
Are you wondering how to be happy? I’m going to let you in on the BIG SECRET to happiness…
Happiness is a choice.
Even if you don’t believe me, it’s true!
You might be thinking…”I don’t feel happy.”
I get it. Most of the time, I don’t “feel” happy either. In fact, most days I wake up feeling like I’ve been hit by a truck. But I’m still happy.
Sounds crazy, doesn’t it? How is this possible?
