The Imperfection Paradox - Self-worth and Addiction
The root of all addictions, compulsions, obsessions originate from a fundamental lack of self-worth, a fear of failure, a fear of not being enough, not being loved. We strive for this unattainable external illusion of perfection, when instead we can look inside and realise we have much to celebrate for the imperfect beings that we are. We have much to learn from our imperfections and little to gain from 'perfection'.
