I am not a perfectionist, but I am treading very closely on the heels of expecting perfectionism of myself as well as other people. Crazy...I know.
This is not a good thing!! It really is not a good thing!!
Even if I wanted to claim to be a "Perfectionist"...... I really would not be! For, who of us are perfect? None.... No, not one of us.
So, where do the words "Stress" and "Peace" come into play with the word Perfectionist?
These two words are all about our TRUST in the LORD!
Is there a word such as expectation-ist??
"Expectation means believing that a task will be done in the best way possible, whereas perfection is the definitive one hundred percent right way of doing anything. This means that expectation is something which all humans can have, whereas, one must realize that perfection is seldom achievable by mankind."
Stress is something that happens when things do not turn out the "PERFECT" way you are "EXPECTING" them to turn out!!
I can't beat myself up if the expectations that I desire in others, does not meet up to my "Per-fect-ex-pect-sion-ism"
Perceived ideas can cause Stress.
When I saw the above picture quote, I had to stop and read it several times.....
I try to do EVERYTHING myself.....because in my mind, I am the only one that can do something the way I am expecting it to be done.
Why stress over such trivial things in life? Rolling with the flow can be so much less of a headache. What happens, happens.... and if the results cause situations to turn out different from what I had planned, then it does!
Ha, Ha....who am I kidding. I like things/situations to be near perfect.
I'm working on myself....
I know that PEACE comes from giving Everything to God!!
God did not intend for me to do everything on my own...HE is not the giver of STRESS. HE is my PEACE!!!
Just something to ponder about...
