Maybe you constantly compare how well you do to someone else’s accomplishments. Sometimes you feel like you suck because you’re learning. You can’t expect to master something new instantly.
Giving yourself the freedom to not be perfect will bring you joy. You can enjoy the learning process. There’s no need to be shackled by perfectionism. Your quality of life suffers when you try to get it right with no learning curve.
There’s nothing wrong with striving for excellence. Stop demanding perfection in everything you do.
You need to learn to play. Let your hair down and live in the moment. Be willing to make mistakes. Consider what kind of experience you want to have, and immerse yourself in the process. It can be liberating.
You can laugh at how terrible you are at certain activities. Try something you’ve always wanted to do without any expectations. Do it for you and not to impress other people.
Think about the kind of life you want. How much joy, humor and playfulness do you want? How can you reach that? It’s okay to be imperfect.
