When is Enough, Enough?
We live in world of constant demands, and without realizing it we may be putting unnecessary pressure on ourselves to meet an unrealistic ideal. We put pressure on ourselves to be the best mom, father, employee, athlete or whatever else is at the center of our lives in any given moment. It’s easy to forget that perfection doesn’t exist, it’s merely an illusion. Who we choose to be, and how “good” we should be is greatly influenced by our surroundings, and how we choose to see “success.” Yes, I said it, how YOU choose to see success.
Success is determined by how you choose to view progress and growth. I’m not saying you shouldn’t work hard, and do your best. All I’m trying to say is that at the end of the day you are the one that can determine what is enough, without comparing yourself to anyone else. Everyone’s path is different, but we all need to use self-compassion, and to realize we are all doing our best.
