I struggle with perfectionsim. It is sometimes difficult for me to find it in my heart to accept what I think to be "less thank perfect" results. This makes me less compassionate towards myself (Mostly) but to others as well. 

It stems from my desire/need to be successful in life & my career because my parents were not well-off, did not have qualifications & eventually were divorced. My brothers both struggled with drug addiction & this put strain on our family. 

I'd like to help others & by doing so I can learn to be more compassionate. Self-Compassion is 1 of the key aspects to learn to be able to live a happy life. It provides comfort if we are able to accept that maybe today's 70% was my best try & that's okay! Often, just getting out of bed & going for a walk is the best thing someone can do!
