Me & Myself

Being a Perfectionist & Losing My Creativity

Hello angels!

As promised, I’m coming back with a weekly update blog post. Well, there’s not that much to be updated about as my life is not very exciting at the moment. But let’s get into it anyway!

I’m finally feeling like myself again. If you can remember, I mentioned in my last update post that I’ve lost my creativity over the past few months. Being a creative individual, I felt like I’d lost a part of me, which later led to a state of depression.

I felt like my content was never good enough. I kept reshooting the same outfits over and over again to get the perfect shot I wanted to take in the first place. And to be honest, I still do. The joys of being a perfectionist haha! Then I would spend hours editing the pictures only to re-edit the whole thing multiple times so as to reach the exact vibe I wanted to portray. I also started questioning whether the content I’m sharing is the content I want to share. Whether that content actually corresponds with who I am.

And somewhere during the hunt for perfection, I burnt out. I could no longer create absolutely anything. Whilst there’s absolutely nothing wrong with striving for being our best selves, we have to remember that there is actually no such thing as perfection. Often it’s about the process rather than the end goal.

Once I realised that I don’t have to put out only the content I’d consider ‘perfect’ and that it’s a process of learning and trial and error, I found my creativity again. I’m not sure if I’m fully there just yet, but I’m close!

See you soon!

xoxo, S. V.
