Is Being a Perfectionist Good or Bad?

We’ve been thinking a lot about whether being a perfectionist is a good thing or a bad thing. The result? We’ve found out that it can be both!


The real question might be, WHERE should we aim for perfection? In some places, being perfect is helpful, but in others, it’s okay to let things be as they are.

Fear of Imperfection?

Sometimes, maybe the problem isn’t wanting to be perfect. We just have a fear of being imperfect!

Ever Heard of Kintsugi? 

Kintsugi is a beautiful Japanese art where broken pottery is fixed with golden glue. This art teaches us that there’s beauty in imperfection and our flaws and breaks. There’s a great video here that talks more about it!

Kintsugi doesn’t ask if being perfect is good or bad. It shows us the beauty of being imperfect!
