Perfection or Joy : choose wisely.

I always struggle with trying to achieve perfection. That can make me ambitious and resourceful. However, now I feel no one perfect then why I always run behind perfection. In College days my friends use to call me miss perfect. Striving to be perfect is not only exhausting, it opens you up to an all-or-nothing attitude. I used to think, if I can’t be perfect, then I won’t do it.

Many of us spend our whole lives in that pursuit of perfection, and therefore, we often suffer unnecessarily.

Many people spend their lives striving for perfection; perfection in the way they look, where they work, and their relationships. Perfection is as elusive as silence. You can never quite reach perfection; and just when you think, you’ve achieved it; Something shifts, and it’s lost. It’s even difficult to describe true perfection. There is no perfect Job, no perfect boss sometimes no perfect family. If anything matters in this life that is only Joy and happiness.

The study measured three types of perfectionism : Self-oriented, Socially prescribed and Other-oriented.

When things don’t happen the way, you want, you start denying reality itself. So getting obsessed to do things done in your way in the perfect order leads to trouble. The best thing is that let’s not run behind pursuits of perfection let’s run behind pursuits of happiness, and everything will fall in place automatically.

Rather than striving to be perfect, whatever ‘perfect’ may be, strives to be the best version of yourself. Perfection can only be achieved by healthy mind. It takes practice to silence the perfect gremlins. However, over time, you will find that it gets easier. That’s how you let go of perfection and find joy.
