Perfectionism


And so I thought 

 

once I felt seen

got praised, got a raise 

it would go away

 

once I de-stressed

got time off from my job

it would drift away

 

once I reached my goal

got rated “exceptional”

it would surely leave

 

once I felt proud

of all that I’ve achieved

it would bring reprieve 

 

And so I thought

I've always thought it is a design fault of Nature that you can't think of nothing. It would be so destressing.
