Meditation Benefits Part 6, Let Go Of Perfection, Perfectionism Is Not Perfection!

Meditation Benefits Part 6 -Have you ever felt totally overwhelmed? So many external and internal expectations! They are thrust on us from the moment we are born. They come from all directions parents, teachers, the state, church, peers all expect us to behave in specific ways and achieve certain things as per their opinions, desires or even as a surrogate for their own perceived lacks. There seems to be this lingering Pressure to be 100% perfect, striving for perfection, in other words, perfectionism, many of us seem to take this mantle on ourselves.  Neurotic perfectionism! All you really need to do to succeed is let go of perfection. Yes, I know how hard it is.

Where does perfectionism come from and why is overcoming perfectionism so difficult? Simple! We receive praise if we fulfill “their” expectations and may be invalidated if we do not. We try to be the perfect X, Y, Z’s in order to fit in. But all the time we feel like failures because we can’t live up to the other people’s ideas of perfection. Even the old adage, “try your best” or some form of it can be debilitating. There are so many personal dangers of striving for perfection. It can cause great uncertainty which leads to anxiety, which in turn sends you into a state of fear. Fear is debilitating!

It is not just “they or them.” In turn, we act out what we have learned. As well, we judge others and want them to be perfect in accordance with our expectations of who they are. Failing to see, know and love them for their authentic self in just the same way that others have done to us. This stands in our way of having our own direct authentic experience of ourselves, of others and of the divine. So how can we overcome this challenge? Simple, let go of perfection. First, however, we need to understand how to know if you’re a perfectionist before you can move on to how to get rid of perfectionism.
