Do you feel pressure to be perfect? How much of it is tied to what you see online?


There are occasional moments when I see a gorgeous celebrity or a beautiful model in an ad, and feel pressured to look like that, but I know most of them are air-brushed. Most of the pressure to be perfect, comes from inside of me.
I want to be a perfect wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, and granddaughter. I want my writing to be perfect, my home to be perfectly cleaned, my flower gardens to be perfectly aligned, etc… Most of these perfections I have had to let go of due to my health and living to far away.
These days my perfectionism is focused mainly on my writing. I am learning every day, and although I haven’t reached perfection yet, I am striving toward it.
