Does self comparison drive you crazy?

Self-comparison

I think our need to be perfect comes from many things but one main issue is comparison. We look at someone else’s life and think that they have it all together. They are doing everything right and they look great while doing it.  Well let me just tell you that no one has the shit together 100% of the time. There’s absolutely no way that is possible.

Trying to be Perfect at Everything

I use to be a perfectionist. I would drive myself crazy worrying about every little detail and trying to make everything just right. Not only did I drive myself crazy but I drove everyone around me crazy too. My kids had to have the perfect outfit, birthday and presents. Every time my husband did something to help me out it wasn’t good enough because he did it wrong. I would spend entire weekends cleaning my house so it looked amazing (which is next to impossible with 3 kids). I was getting burnt out trying to make my life look perfect.

Learning to Love Yourself

One of the hardest things to do is to learn to love yourself. With my need to be perfect all the time I never felt I was good enough. I always compared myself to other people who I thought were getting it right. I never took time for me because I felt I needed to keep going to keep up with all the other “perfect” moms out there.

How I get get through my mornings

 

In a perfect world I would jump out of bed before my alarm goes off, workout and be ready to start my day without even drinking any coffee. But unfortunately I don’t live in a perfect world. My morning routine is usually the same Monday through Friday and involves a lot of pep talk to get me moving. I thought I would take you through my morning because I like looking at other people’s schedule and seeing what they do so I thought it would be fun to show you what I do.

How I’m learning to let my kids be messy

I knew I was going overboard on organizing when my son said he didn’t want to play with his toys because he would make a mess on the floor. Kids should not be afraid to play because mom is going to freak out over the mess. Kids are messy that’s just a fact. By my actions I was telling my kids that it’s not alright to be messy. That being messy is bad. I knew then that something had to change.

Does having the “perfect” life make you happy?

 

does having the perfect life make you happy

I have a vision in my head of what my “perfect” life looks like. I have a beautiful house, new car, well behaved kids (all the time), nice clothes and I never have to worry about money. But who really has that? No one and even if they did, it doesn’t mean that they are happy. You have to learn to be happy where you are now. If you aren’t then what makes you think that buying things is going to change that.

What is the Perfect Body?

 

what is the perfect body

I always wanted the perfect body. What is the perfect body? Who actually gets to decide that? Just because someone is “skinny” does not mean they are healthy. The same for if someone is overweight, they might be very healthy. My point is being healthy is different for every person. Most people judge healthy by the way you look or that number on the scale but we need to change our way of thinking.
