Chill The Bleep Out, Man

You might be like me, where from time to time, you have to sit down and give yourself a pep talk. And on occasionally those pep talks consists of the brutal awaken that it isn’t all that serious and “chill the f*** out”.

That’s where I am today. Or rather Friday. And if we are being really honest, all of last week. I easily get into the mindset of a perfectionist. Everything must be perfect, I must be perfect. What others think of me must be perfect. You see where I am going. A complete and utter mind game. A reality that will never be attainable. My blog will never be perfect, relationships will be messy, someone will not like me for whatever reason. That is life. A big glob of uncomfortable, imperfect situations that I get to deal with.

Why do I get to deal with them? Because I am living life. Sure I can lock myself in a room, never interact with anyone, never move, do what I know. People won’t hate me because they won’t know me. I’ll be good at my job because that’s the only thing I’ve ever experienced. And I’ll never have to be uncomfortable because I am not forced into new situations. To me, that sounds horrible.

So for the things I obsessively stress about; the best blog post, the perfect outfit from Nasty Gal for an”important” event, the preferred work setting, the a pristine public appearance, all I have to say to myself is “Chill the f*** out, man”. It’s not that serious.

Have you ever felt this way before? Let me know in the comments below, and how you chill out when the perfectionism kicks in.

  1. Yes! I’m constantly trying to figure out why some people don’t like me! Always get back to chill the bleep out! I think I’m a nice person, but I’ve learned to accept some people will just not like me and that’s OK!

    Thanks for the reminder!

  2. It happens to me all the time. Not a perfectionist but I always feel that there are room for improvements and that’s when the pressure kicks in. One thing I do is to shut myself in the washroom for 5 minutes, breathe and talk to myself that this is just a small matter and I’ve done my best already. Phewwie.

    It’s Monday and I shall chill the XX out when tension gets over me! Happy Monday Ellese x

  3. I feel you! I want things to be perfect especially my grades. It makes me not enjoy the learning itself because I focus on my grades too much but still, I want perfect grades:(( I always tell myself “the less you care, the happier you will be”, it doesn’t always work but it always helps me be a little less perfectionist;)
