Overcoming your perfectionism is not easy. At all.
It’s a coping mechanism you’ve been carrying around for so many years, so it’s no wonder that many of us recovering perfectionists feel a little tired, stressed and confused from time to time.
But there are people who can help you. People who have gone through the same things you’re going through now.

These 8 relatable and inspiring Instagram accounts share what it’s really like to let go of the hustle of perfectionism and embrace your perfectly imperfect self instead.
