5 Steps to Stop Being a Perfectionist

Perfectionism is an unhealthy way to live life. It causes stress, anxiety, and unhappiness. But there are things you can do to change this habit.

1. Embrace Imperfection

Accept That You Can't Be Perfect.

If you've ever tried to be perfect, you know how difficult it is. No one is perfect, so why try to be? Instead, focus on doing the best you can. This will help you feel better about yourself and make you more productive. There's no use in trying to be perfect in everything, because that's just simply impossible. It also has a lot to do with the opinions and thoughts of other people. You're trying to be perfect, not always for yourself, but also for others. Try accepting that people just have different opinions about you and that you can't be attractive to everyone around you. Once you've accepted that, you will find it easier to stop being a perfectionist.

2. Focus On Your Unique Journey

Don't Compare Yourself to Others.

It's easy to compare ourselves to others when we see them achieving things we haven't yet accomplished. However, comparing yourself to others only makes you feel worse. Instead, focus on yourself and do the things that give you the feeling that you're achieving things and giving your best. Remember, everyone's better in something else, so don't try to achieve something that you're simply not made for just to be satisfied with yourself. Find your own talent and support it with all you've got!

3. Prioritize The Journey Over The Destination


Focus on the Process, Not the Product.

If you're feeling overwhelmed by the idea of doing something well, try focusing on the process instead of the product. This will help you stay motivated and focused on what you need to accomplish rather than how you think you should be performing. When you give all your thought to the process and not the outcome, you won't get distracted by thoughts of what the final product should look like. Instead, your doing your best and will be more proud of the product of your work.

4. Release Unrealistic Expectations


Let Go of Expectations.

As already mentioned, it's easy to become obsessed with the end result when we set goals. However, setting expectations too high can lead to disappointment and frustration. Don't expect too much out of yourself. Do the best you can and see what the result looks like. If you feel that the result is not good enough for you, you can always go ahead and better yourself! If you always expect too much, your going to be disappointed a lot of times and that will demotivate you in the end and you'll always have bad expectations. So as you can see, it's a good idea to stop having expectations and just go with it. Don't think too much and just do it! It may be hard at first, but eventually you'll do it.

5. Embrace Failure As a Learning Opportunity


Learn From Mistakes.

If you've ever tried something new and failed at first, you probably learned something along the way. That's because failure is an essential part of learning. So instead of beating yourself up after failing, learn from your mistakes. Everybody makes mistakes, as I already mentioned, nobody is perfect and humans are always making mistakes. That's not necessarily a bad thing, though. Mistakes are just a part of life and you'll never meet someone who never in their lives made a mistake. So when you have that thought in your head, that other people make mistakes too, you'll probably find it much easier to deal with your own mistakes. Take one person, for example, that you look up to and just think about how they probably also make mistakes. Even if it may look like they never do, it's probably the truth. Think about what we said earlier: Everybody makes mistakes! There's no exception! So just learn from mistakes and try to better yourself so they won't happen again. 

In conclusion, breaking free from the shackles of perfectionism is a liberating journey toward a healthier and more fulfilling life. Embracing imperfection, focusing on your unique journey, prioritizing the process over the product, releasing unrealistic expectations, and learning from mistakes are powerful steps to cultivate a positive mindset. Remember, no one is flawless, and it's through our imperfections that we learn, grow, and truly thrive. By applying these principles, you can pave the way for a life marked by authenticity, resilience, and a genuine sense of accomplishment. Let go of the pursuit of perfection, and embrace the beauty of progress and self-discovery. Your well-being deserves it.
