I love having high standards because it pushes me to keep going, do it better and don’t give up. And even my pride doesn’t let me accept low standards of performance.
I hate having high standards because I always want everything to be perfect and I feel less when something is not going as great as I expected.
I also hate having high standards because others clumsiness or laziness bothers me or even make me angry. Somehow, I just don’t understand why other people don’t want to do their best. Why they don’t want to make the most out of themselves?
I know we are different, and we see the world differently and also, our needs and expectations are varied. I know all of these but still, it’s not easy to put my frustration behind me when I see someone is not succeeding even they have the potential to do it. Including me. I feel wasting my time when I use a weekend just to chill.
What should we do then? I think if you have the same “problem” then needs to remind ourselves that if something is not perfect, is not the end of the world. Also, it is important to maintain your standards and how could you do it better than with a relaxed mind and body!
Takes a lot of courage to admit this, but it is better than having frustration all time just because something is not good as you imagined it. Sometimes we just need to let it go.
