Stop Beating Yourself Up Perfectionism Quotes To Help You Let It GoStop beating yourself up! Here are 11 perfectionism quotes to remind you to let it go.

I personally know how tough it can be to escape from the strong grip of self criticism and unrealistic perfectionism.

I used to be an avid perfectionist.

At one point, a therapist I was seeing even said to me, “Karen, you are a perfectionist.”

My response: “No, I’m not. I’m not nearly a perfectionist enough.”

After a brief pause, we both wound up laughing very hard!

My reply was a hilarious example of how much of a perfectionist I truly was.

As a result of my pickiness, I wound up suffering from body dysmorphia.  Later this turned into what I call “life dysmorphia.”

I was so busy looking at what was wrong, I wasn’t appreciating what was right. And even pretty darn wonderful.

In many ways perfectionism is a frenemy.

Perfectionism seems like it’s there to help you.

But it mostly does more harm than good.

Excellence and effort are your buddies.

But, perfectionism is simply an excuse to beat yourself up.
