You are entering a race that you can’t win; you can’t even finish as the finishing line always moves beyond your reach. Your race to reach perfection is an optical illusion; it’s a mirage. People who seek and appear to need perfection have been proved to be the unhappiest and most unsatisfied people in the world. You will meet your need for acceptance when you stop trying to be perfect.
Marisa Peer. “Ultimate Confidence.”
