Perfection is an illusion. — Circumstances will never be perfect, and you will never feel 100% ready. Get to the point that you say, I am ready, and I have what I need to succeed right now, just as I am.
Asearch for a sense of belonging and meaning in life has been a long journey for me. As a young adult, I struggled with confusion, doubt, insecurity, and worry about my future. For years, I battled with an eating disorder, relationship issues, and a feeling of not fitting in. Challenges at home made me feel isolated and alone. All I wanted was to feel accepted and understood. Sadly, I went through years of suffering until I realized that true peace comes from within.
My quest for perfection led to an eating disorder, Anorexia Athletica, when I was thirteen. I exercised for three hours a day and strictly restricted my diet. While in college, disordered thinking regarding body image caused me to overeat. That led to a state of desperation and prompted me to get help. Chasing perfection took me off course.
