    Thanks for sharing on this topic. When we expect ourselves to be perfect, then without necessarily realising it, there is an underlying expectation for others to be perfect. If we find ourselves feeling judged, when we dig deeper we will see, we ourselves have judged – judged ourselves and others.

    Learning to let go, accept who we are and realise that we are “perfect” just as we come, brings inner freedom and peace to just be who we are (and allow others to be who they are too).

    Because let’s face it … we are all pretty special! Each and every one of us.

    I completely agree that perfectionism can steal so much joy from your life. It can also make you hyper-focused on the tiny bumps in the road instead of simply enjoying the road trip of life. Gratitude is very helpful in moving past the tiny imperfections and re-focusing on what’s actually important. You listed so many great tips in moving past perfectionism! Thanks for the post!

    I really needed this article and appreciate the fact that you wrote it. I struggle big time with perfectionism and it makes life very difficult.

    I made sure to bookmark this post so that I can come back to it whenever I am struggling with the need to be perfect.

    I constantly try to say to myself, as a reminder, that done is better than perfect. There is so much I go without doing because I do not feel that I can do it perfectly. I am hoping to break free from that.

    I needed this today. I was really apprehensive about a work presentation and worried that my work is not perfect. But you’re right. I should focus on the journey. Thank you.

    I’m the quintessential perfectionist. And in this season of life having such a hard time taking a step back. Unfortunately, this leads to major burnout for me (where I’m currently at). So I feel like I really have to practice self care. Thank you for sharing your wisdom!

    This is such a lovely post. I really relate to it (especially the pleasing people part). My friend recently told me to “approach things with curiosity, not judgement,” and that’s helped me a lot when it comes to abandoning my impossibly high standards for myself and others. Great post!

    Thank you for sharing this. I struggle with perfectionism and can feel quite unsettled when things don’t go exactly to plan. My new mantra is ‘progress, not perfection’.

    You touched a few nerves there. Outstanding post, well done! It would appear I qualify as a perfectionist then. It can be rather annoying at times though. Smile and wave…
