Contrary to what you see on social media, everyone is still trying to figure it out; we all struggle; it is ok not to be ok; it is ok not to be perfect, progress not perfection; momentum is the key to achieving anything worthwhile.

No one has a challenge-free life, and the key to getting things done is to keep moving.
Atelophobia is the fear of not doing something right or the fear of not being good enough. It’s a fear of imperfection. Atelophobia is etymologically composed of two Greek words: the prefix Atelo(s) means imperfect and phobia, which means fear.
