Atelophobia


It has a name.
Atelophobia.
Why do some of us 
strive for perfectionism?
Were we born with this,
or taught to behave this way?
It forces unattainable 
and unrealistic goals
upon us.
Once these goals aren’t reached,
we fall down far,
some into depression.
We should try to be our best,
our best within our capabilities,
and not some else’s version of perfect.
Our own attainable goals
will bring us contentment
and happiness.
