Tired Of Being Perfect – When You Just Want To Be Real?


Have you ever tried perfection, knowing that it is an impossible goal?

Instead, embrace the goodness of who you are – faults and all. After all, no-one including yourself is perfect!

Set your self-improvement goals to specific, measurable levels that you know you can accomplish. Take realistic steps that lead to attainable goals.

This way, you know you will be getting better and better all the time. With each step you take, learn and grow, but understand that you don’t have to be perfect.

Have a conversation with yourself along these lines:

“I know that most of the time I do my best and I forgive myself for sometimes doing less. After all, no one is perfect, and that’s okay.”

When you make a mistake, admit it, do what you can to correct it, and learn from it.

Realise that making mistakes is a natural part of being human. Rather than beating yourself up about it, move forward with no regrets.

Have a conversation with yourself along these lines:

“This moment is what is real and I am a part of it. The past is done and the future is yet to come.   I am grateful for this present moment and relish its possibilities.”

Today, plan to live life to its fullest, to enjoy each and every moment for what it can bring, and stop trying to exhibit perfection.

“I am what I am and that’s fine with me!”

Answer these questions honestly:

1.    In what ways do I strive for perfection?
2.   Am I happy with myself?
3.   Do I stress out about the past or future, or do I enjoy the reality of     living in the moment?

Is there anything that you think you can alter or improve on?

Let me know your ideas or what you think.
