  1. I did years of trying to do perfect! Very overrated ha 😉

  2. I’m with Karen. Spent years trying to be perfect…the perfect daughter, the perfect student, the perfect wife, the perfect friend. It’s exhausting and stultifying and never led to greater happiness. In recent years, have worked hard to lay down that burden. Not an easy go, to be sure. Those ruts are well worn. But when I can relinquish my grip? So. Much. Happier. And I love Brene. She’s badass…

  3. Perfection seemed like too far a reach for me – my shortcomings are longer than I am tall. That said, Brene’s book was great and she’s definitely onto something when she speaks of the human experience..

  5. I love Brené. She is brilliant and wise. Perfection is demanded by those who cannot achieve it.
    Did you know that those who bite their nails are often perfectionists? Kind of an oxymoron as those chewed off nails make a hand look far from perfect.
