Why Things Don’t Have To Be Perfect

Because they never will be.

Ever.

We can cry about it. Or get comfortable in imperfection. 

I have probably already lost 80% of those who started off reading this by the above statement. People don’t like things to be out of place because they feel like that’s a reflection on them.
First of all, it isn’t. But even if it was………?

I believe producing at an imperfect level is more honorable compared to the stagnation that “perfection” causes. Our lives were meant to be fruitful, not a strainful.  By seeking perfection and calling it “excellence” we have placed an impossible standard on ourselves that leaves us in a position to feel like if something isn’t perfect, its not valuable.

We should produce quality. Sure. But if its between producing nothing or producing something that’s less than perfect…..Produce. Do. Give. Make. Create.

There is nothing more excellent or perfect than someone who is willing to be a little undone and do it anyway.

People Pleaser

I have always had a problem with being a “people pleaser“. So much to the extent that it has caused me to make decisions that I now deeply regret and have altered my life to some extent.
I was thinking about it the other day and I really started to shift my view of what “people pleasing” really was.
We make it sound like its all about them. But really….its all about us.

What will they think if ME? Do they like ME? Do they approve of what I did? Am I good enough?
Its all about yourself and how YOU look.
Before I have always thought that beating being a people pleaser meant I needed to take other people off the pedestal.
No….I need to take myself off the pedestal.

It doesn’t matter how you are perceived. Be true to yourself. Be true to what you know to be right and wrong.Be exactly who you are and don’t worry about making yourself look good.

Pride is a root of being a people pleaser. Some one will always not agree with something you are doing. We cannot look good to everyone at all times. You will literally drive yourself insane.

Don’t place all your value on what other’s think of you.
Our lives are meant to be full and glorious.
There is not room for people pleasing.
