This month for my column for Y Magazine’s Voice of Oman I shared how being a perfectionist was once something I was proud of but not anymore.
It has taken me a long time to come to this realization, we do not live in a perfect world yet we are surrounded by this notion or should I dare say fixation that EVERYTHING has to be perfect!
The truth is no matter how hard you try to perfect everything, I can guarantee you that there something that is going to ruin it, and you just have to accept it.
I don’t know about you but I find that wanting everything to be perfect puts me under a lot of pressure. Pressure that is self-inflicted so there is no one but myself to blame.
To this day we get so upset with ourselves and others when we make mistakes, but if we really think about it, mistakes only prove that we are trying to get it right.
The bottom line stop focusing on living a perfect life and simply live!
I am interested to hear your thoughts on the matter, please share them below.
