Self compassion is not compatible with perfection.

The individualistic competitive world today forced us to be ambitious, sometimes ruthless and over demanding with ourselves. Everyone wants the perfect life, the perfect job, the perfect family, the perfect house, the perfect body… It is a vicious circle of compulsions.

This mindset couldn’t be further than the truth. Perfection is an advertised ideal concept to keep people busy face down; while progress is realistic and compassionate.

Global politics and capitalistic ideology promote perfection because it makes people narrow minded and enslaved. Not a better way to pay taxes and keep away from troubles.

However this illusion is a source of deadly stress, depression, low self esteem and resentment.

Is it strange that everybody is miserable?
