Perfection is a Form of Self-Abuse - Karen Salmansohn

Perfection is a Form of Self-Abuse

Perfection is a Form of Self-Abuse
Going for excellence is motivating.

Going for perfection is setting yourself up for pain—because perfection does not exist.

Be gentle with yourself. You’re doing the best you can.

You’re simply a work in progress. And all those mistakes you make along the way have the power to turn you into something better, stronger, wiser than you might have been otherwise.


Your relationship with yourself sets the tone for every other relationship you have. So make it a warm and forgiving relationship. Talk to yourself the way you’d talk to someone you love.

Shush your inner bully. Be your own bestie.

Ban, delete, shred, obliterate the words “I’m not good enough.”

Be good to you.
