I have always struggled with perfectionism, especially in my crafting. I know, “flaws” make it evident a human, not a machine made it, but I can’t help it, especially if someone is paying money… I want it to be perfect!
This trait has spilled over into most facets of my life, though THANKFULLY, I have come a long way on it. I do strive for progress, and the best I can do, but I realize perfection isn’t usually attainable.
You aren’t perfect either. You are also going to make mistakes and experience failure in multiple contexts, at multiple jobs and with multiple people. But instead of focusing on how you failed, think about what you’re going to do next time – turn your FAILURE into a LESSON.
Life is truly a lot easier when you let go of the need/desire to be perfect, and embrace the lessons in FAILING FORWARD.
