Perfection Equals a Broken Heart Altered Book Page

Perfectionism = a Broken Heart

Perfectionism is something that I struggle with daily. When I let it get the better of me, I hurt others around me and also myself. I need to continually remind myself that I won't be perfect and I need to be satisfied with my best effort and then say "enough"! I usually expect to much of myself and those around me. Maybe it is partly because I am a first-born. Maybe because of a hyper-critical mother. I don't know all the reasons why, but I do know that it can be very destructive.

A beautiful collage. From another first born, I know it is hard to let go….. but you will enjoy life more, i think. Laura
