I don’t think there’s a single person out there who wouldn’t want to do something and know they did it perfectly. The thing is we are human and we will never be perfect.
As parents we try our very best to be the best parent we can. We want to raise our kids to one day be adults and be as successful as they can be. But no matter how hard we try we will never be perfect at it. We will make mistakes along the way. We will doubt ourselves. We have to learn from both our own mistakes and also from those parents around us so we can be the best parents we can be.
So perfectionism, will we ever obtain it as a parent? No, but we can do the best we can.
Or how about in our writing? Has there ever been a person who’s written a first draft and that was what he or she has published. The reality of that happening is about slim to none. Again, at the end of the day, we are still human. We have made mistakes in the past and we will continue to do so into the future.
The important thing to remember is if we do our best then that all we can ask ourselves.
