Why Failing Imperfectly?
When I was first creating this site and trying to come up with a name, I knew I wanted something that described my life. I have always been someone who tries to be utterly perfect for everyone. I was trying to be perfect in the sense that I wanted to be everything for everyone. While trying to be perfect, I have had a very unhealthy fear of failure. Most of my anxiety is triggered by potential failure. Or my perfectionistic need to please others.
I’m not perfect. I never have been and I never will be. I am learning that failure is a good thing. Failure means I am succeeding. Failure means progress. I will never be perfect for anyone. I will fail people over and over again. I will fail at anything and everything.
I had many names in my mind, most were taken. I twisted and rearranged again and again. Then this one came to me. Failing Imperfectly. The domain was available and so was the Google account. But I hesitated. I wasn’t sure if I connected with it enough.
I do. I chose Failing Imperfectly because I am not perfect. As I was hesitating on Failing Imperfectly, I came up with the tagline as well; Life. The imperfect way.
My life is imperfect. I have connected with bloggers and influencers who show their imperfections. I want to share my imperfect life with you so you have inspiration. None of us will ever be perfect. We all have our shit we have to deal with. We all have setbacks and roadblocks. We are all imperfect.
I fail all the time. I’m imperfect. This is my life and I’m here to share it with you.
