Rant about how I kept getting in my own way as a kid.

Being a perfectionist to me means that you obsess over the mistakes and ignore the things you did well. So when I did find the mistake in my CV, I got so upset that I spent the day rewriting it, cursing myself for not being thorough and deciding this was the reason I got so many rejections.
5'o'clock came and only then did I realise I had missed every email in my inbox, ignored every interview.

I guess obsession is just self-sabotage in disguise.

    Relatable. Working hard on allowing myself to be human. It's not like I even care when other people make the same mistakes that I do. Now, if I could just extend that courtesy to myself 😅
