Released my post on what I do about perfectionism as a content creator, which was my biggest obstacle blogging (it used to take me sometimes a month to finish a post)!

Somebody once told me, "Perfection can be the enemy of the good." They told me that in light of the fact that I had virtually nothing to show for all my high school art classes simply because I smashed up anything that wasn't perfect.

I'm reading a book right now called the gift of imperfection --- there is an entire chapter on how perfectionism is not a good thing in ANY way. You are lucky someone shared that insight with you and that you heard it. :)

Omg, this is awesome. I actually have a similar post about how perfectionism harms your relationships and mental health (based on my experience). My other blog is down right now, though, so I cannot share it 🙁
