Striving for achieving a sense of perfection has been a misguided belief in my life, often leading me down the wrong path. It has made me, at times, place value on the wrong things. It has made me not listen to my true self for fear that I would somehow fail in another's eyes. I was curious as to how the idea of perfection has become so pervasive in our society, how it begins, how it hurts us and perhaps, even, if it carries a certain benefit.

  1. H,

    It's good to hear from you again!

    The question of perfection seems closely related to the question of how do we measure success (which is a question on which I've been reflecting.)

    It seems that our answers to these questions will direct much of our decisions.
