Some say comparison is the thief of joy. I say perfectionism is. I think they go together though. Being a perfectionist, I oftentimes thought - “Well if I can’t do it right the first time, something must be wrong with me.” And I would quit. Or worse yet, not even start because of my belief that I couldn’t, or that someone else could do it better. This is one of the most damaging ways of thinking. I think I am a relatively smart person and STILL I thought like this even though I knew better! Everyone begins somewhere. It doesn’t matter where you start. You don’t have to be perfect. You don’t have to know it all. You just have to create a belief that you can do what you can and that is ENOUGH. You are enough. You can do hard shit - and it doesn’t matter if someone can do it better. This move by the way was ridiculously hard and in the past I would have given up - but I’ve built my belief in myself. You can too.
