Paralyzed by Perfection

I often feel paralyzed by the need to be perfect. There are days that are harder than others. I think I know what I need to do, or want, and then I feel as if I have no clue what I'm doing with my life. Often, one thing triggers a domino effect. I get one bad response and find myself spiraling down a path of ... ' .. I'm just the worst at everything, and I probably don't know what I'm talking about.'

It's days like this that I try to tell myself that everything is going to be okay. At least, that there are some positive things that I'm doing, and that there are so many things I'm doing right. I also tell myself that if it's something you really want out of life, than a small prick of a needle or splinter shouldn't be the end of the world.

That's ridiculous. 

Then I find myself questioning everything. 

Is this really what I want to be doing out of life? 

Ah!

I don't know, help. 

I guess, at the end of the day. I need to remember that these things take patience and time. And when I mean these things ... I just mean, whatever it is that we're working hard towards. Sometimes life can feel hopeless, but to be honest, I am so blessed and I have so many things to be thankful for.

I need to remember that I'm going to be all right, and just move forward.
