A lot of people think developing self-awareness is the same as trying to be perfect. To dispel this myth, it's important to understand that there is no such thing as perfection; the only thing that really matters in life is being the best, most authentic you possible. If you don't live life as the real you and don't honor who you are deep inside, you will never be able to grow or become fulfilled.
People who are trying to be perfect waste all of their time on some false ideal. I prefer to keep moving forward and taking small actions to become the best me I can be. You don't have to worry about perfection, just figure out who you are deep inside and then try to be that person in real life. When you let go of the need to be perfect, you can focus on just being yourself.
It's also important to take a break once in a while and not always be doing stuff. Take some time to do fun things that bring you joy and help you recharge. Supplement your self-awareness development efforts with things that bring you peace and balance. The goal is to keep growing and enjoy the journey toward self-awareness.
