    Socially prescribed perfectionism is definitely something that I have experienced. The rise of social media is definitely the culprit for me. I’m somewhat of a late bloomer compared to most of the people that I went to college with. For a long time I beat myself up about how well they were doing compared to how I was doing. I’m finally starting to get over that, and happy to say that focusing less on what others are doing and more on improving myself has led me to a very high point in my life and career.

    1. Thanks for your comment Ryan. Yeah, I have been there. Everyone’s life looks GREAT on social media. LOL. That pressure to compete and compare can cause a great deal of anxiety. Like you, I had to learn not to compare my documentary to their highlight reel 😉

    Love what you’re saying in this, I often find myself placing happiness somewhere in the future. Being told constantly that you should be living a certain kind of life can make you burn out sometimes, definitely important to focus on the little things you have in your life and be grateful for them instead.
