Perfection is a downward spiral

July 1, 2024

I continuously find myself feeling like what I'm doing just isn't good enough. I'm continuously comparing my own work to that of some of the most talented people I know, and it's a never-ending cycle of feeling like my work just isn't up to measure. I know that perfection is an unattainable goal, but I can't seem to shake the feeling that it's never good enough.

For a long time, I thought that the way to overcome this feeling was to just work harder and push myself to be better. But the harder I work, the more I realize that perfection is a downward spiral. The more I strive for perfection, the more I realize that it just isn't always possible. Sometimes, I'm just not as good, and will never be as good, as what I'm comparing myself to, and that's okay.

Don't let the pursuit of perfection hold you back. It's a never-ending cycle that will only leave you feeling inadequate. Instead, focus on doing your best and being proud of what you've accomplished. You may not be perfect, but you're doing the best you can, and that's all that matters.
