Some days just suck!
I don’t know where this perfectionism is coming from, but we have developed this mindset that people have to be brilliant all the time.
We really look at social media these days and oversee the obvious. Why? At least I think because we don’t want to see it. We keep on believing that one day we will be the same. But do not understand that they are not even what they claim to be. Nobody is perfect and nobody can be brilliant all the time.
I mean we all know that race car drivers are not born track ready. But still, we somehow believe that they can not do any mistakes! They have to be brilliant at what they are doing every day! But that’s just not who we are. We are far away from being brilliant. And sure, from time to time we can really be brilliant! But hardly every other day!
Where are those expectations are coming from? When have we started to look at this world so differently? I guess, it was just always like this. You get born small and weak, looking up to the grown ups and start to copy their behavior. Weaknesses? Who has the balls to show them? Right! And so we are getting born into this world believing that we have to be like others! Brilliant! All the time!
Just don’t even pretend! Do your thing! Take your time! Life is short, but not that short!
See you next time!
