The Wit of the Staircase
starious' theme
I know that sometimes when you are really worried about something, it ends up not being nearly as bad as you think it will be, and you get to be relieved that you were just being silly, worrying so much over nothing. But sometimes it is just the opposite. It can happen that whatever you are worried about will be even worse than you could have possibly imagined, and you find that you were right to be worried, and even that, maybe, you weren’t worried enough.

Sometimes the oldest wounds feel the freshest.
I am a perfectionist. I have unbelievably high standards. I don’t know why, and it’s not going away. Half the time I feel like a failure, and the other half of the time I might be partially satisfied with myself. I often feel like I let people down or like I let myself down. It sucks I know, but I’ve learned to deal with it and it’s helped me get to where I am. Yes, it can be a problem, and no, I will not lower my expectations- it would mean changing a big part of who I am. I am still learning that perfectionism is not the best, but it’s not the worst thing either. It may come out in different ways like how I fold laundry, eat my food or obsess about my grades. I am still working on that. I hope you can accept that and love me despite of it.
