“Wow you have such a perfect job.”
“Your life is perfect.”
“Your [relationship, marriage, kids, world, career, friendships, family, neighborhood, choices…and the list goes on] is so perfect.”
The Perfection Perception catches a glimpse from the outside.
The Perfection Perception sees you at your best.
The Perfection Perception creates comparison.
But this is a distorted view.
The Perfection Perception doesn’t see the mess inside.
The Perfection Perception doesn’t see your doubt, worry, stress, and struggle.
The Perfection Perception doesn’t see the hard work, the failure, and the loss.
Beware of the Perfection Perception, it is a cloudy lens that creates separation and unnecessary comparison.
