I think University is forcing me to make progress with this goal – I have had to hand in so many imperfect pieces of work, just because they were tough or I left them too late etc. and then time ran out and I had to get them in or fail to graduate!
My “face my fears” goal will hopefully help, because it is forcing me into new and scary situations where there is no way that I can be perfect. Working on being more sociable might help too, as I can see that in real life everybody else makes mistakes (unlike seeing people on facebook where you just get life-highlights).
Ultimately all of this is trying to force myself to understand that I’m not in some holding pattern, preparing myself for a future ideal life. This is my life: good and bad, perfect and mistake-ridden. Mistakes are just a sign that you are putting yourself out there, growing beyond your comfort zone.
