effortlessly perfect

{December 14, 2011}   Perfection is a Disease

I’m having trouble reblogging from my computer right now, but wanted to share a great article I found at betterthansurviving.me.  If you are anything like me, the goal of perfection is a constant struggle. Check out this article here… Perfection is a Disease.


This is an awkward comment, but I’m deleting my account soon and don’t have time to make it pretty.
I want all of the people I follow to know this, although I don’t expect you to care. Reading about your struggles has meant a lot to me over the past few months, so I’m saying this anyway.
I’ve decided to get better.
My blog has been a way that I’ve kept secrets, so I’m leaving this site within the next few days. I talk more about my decision on my latest post.
I wish all of you the best in your recovery.

Thanks for commenting. I wish you nothing but the best in the journey that lies ahead of you. Keep you head up and heart open. There’s nothing you can’t achieve.

I think of perfection as liking what you see when you look in the mirror. not hair color, or faciual features, but really letting yourself like the person you see looking back

That’s a much better definition of perfection than mine. 🙂 I do hope someday to like what I see in the mirror… not just physically, but to truly accept myself for who I am… good and bad. Thanks for commenting. It means a lot.

Jane Fonda was on Dr. Oz. She struggled with eating disorders for over 20 years. She said something beautiful, something like “no one is perfect, and when you strive for perfection you cannot be whole”… something to that tune. http://www.doctoroz.com/videos/jane-fondas-longevity-revolution-pt-1

Thanks for the link! I’ll be sure to check it out. I think the funny thing is that I know striving for perfection is only going to hurt me in the end… but yet I do it anyway. Just a hard habit to break, since it’s been ingrained in me for so long. Baby steps. 🙂
