The problem with perfectionism is it NEVER. STOPS. DEMANDING. MORE. I struggled for so long under the weight of that bad boy, and let me tell you, it was NOT pretty. So when I finally got to the point where I was ready to (really, when I needed to) let go of my own perfectionism, I was so relieved to learn the hidden value of imperfections + flaws. Focusing on progress over perfection gave me my life back.
