My quest for perfection started at a very young age. I always wanted to DO more, BE more, and exceed everyone’s expectations. After nearly 10 years in the banking and real estate industry, . Every day presents challenges and triumphs. My house is a mess, my hair is usually a mess, and I’m definitely far from perfect. But I refuse to feel guilty about that anymore! I’m looking for like-minded people who share the same passions…who are imperfect just like me!
I’ve spent my entire life as a people pleaser who constantly tried to impress others. From a very young age, I learned how NOT to act. I’m not talking about normal misbehavior. I’m talking about learning how to walk differently after being made fun of by a family member for the way I walked. You see, I learned what others didn’t like about me, and I tried to be someone else. I recall multiple times being picked on by a family member for having fat ankles. I weighed 110 pounds when I graduated from high school, but……I had fat ankles. It’s just the way God made me! I refused to wear capri pants and cute leggings out of fear that someone would say something hurtful to me. My fear of rejection has been a real problem most of my life.
