The problem with Perfection is that even when everything seems perfect, for me and for others of you I am sure – Sometimes that is still not enough.
I’m here because on the face of it, I have it all, but I also carry the pressure of maintaining that level of wonderfulness. Every.single.day. I tell you about my fears and my thoughts because even if said them all out loud, people would take one look at me and think I was just spoilt and difficult.
Sometimes I just want to walk away from it all. I am not sure it is possible to always live up to the expectations, of people and of life. Sometimes I want to hide under the duvet and be nothing, be no one and have no expectations to fulfill. It’s like when you have been holding your breath for too long and then you finally remember to breathe. The release is incredible and oh so refreshing.
Essentially the problem with perfection is that I bet I’m not the only one desperate to escape it, that we should take care of judging how perfect things appear for other people. Life is rarely as simple and perfect as it seems on the surface. It took me the best part of 30 years to learn that.
