Nothing's fulfilling to a perfectionist

I keep driving myself to do more and more and better and better for fear I won’t be paid if I’m not perfect. How to stop this merry-go-round.

If your payer is perfect then he/she can refuse to pay an imperfect person

I’m reading a book about that right now. My daughter bought it for me.

That may explain why I never feel fulfilled

It’s a fear of mine. I feel I don’t measure up even when I do.

I certainly understand that. I had a low self esteem for many many years. I think it’s why I let men do to me what they did.

You’re so sweet. I was a nobody in high school but in college I made some really true blue friends. Even though in college men still used me. Most of my friends were from other countries. I did have an American friend whose parents are Filipino.

Yeah forget perfection. If we can just be ourself that would be nice.
