Progress not perfection

I love thst,small,215x235-pad,210x230,f8f8f8.lite-1u2is saying, but as a perfectionist, it is hard to apply to my life. Today I am feeling the need to be perfect. I am feeling like I am not meeting everyone’s expectations and disappointing them.

Today I am doubting myself because I am not perfect. I am overly aware of my flaws and am finding myself worrying about what others think of me. Any criticism today is hitting me in the face and in my heart. I know that no one expects perfection from me, but it can be hard to keep this in mind and shrug it off when I am less than perfect and hyperaware.

Sometimes the only thing to do is to tell myself that I am a work in progress. Although I am impulsive and quick to react, I am quick to recognize when I am wrong. While I pay attention to details, I often focus on the wrong ones. However, today I will remember that I am who I am meant to be I am perfectly imperfect.
