Letting go of Perfect

Letting Go Of “Perfect”
By: Diane Lang
Women tend to add more stress to their lives then we need.
Women (including myself) talk about the stress they have trying to be the perfect mom, perfect wife, perfect friend, perfect businesswoman, etc.
The first thing we need to do is remove the word “perfect”.
Why do we have to be perfect?
Is that realistic? Sustainable?
Of course not. However, we continue to try and it just causes more and more stress.
Perfectionism and control issues are two character traits that equal living a stressed out, unbalanced life.
We are actually doing more harm then good when we try to be perfect.
Instead, let’s take a step back and reduce the anxiety by letting go of perfection and control issues.
It’s ok to want to be your own best. Trying to be better then where you were yesterday
But the best doesn’t mean comparing yourself to others, perfectionism, extreme multi-tasking or trying to control everything.
Trying to be your best means doing what’s best for you and your family.
Being your best means some sacrifice, some compromise, saying no and self-care.
We must remember what we need emotionally, physically and spiritually. That’s balance. That’s when we are our best.
Are you being your best?
