About Happily Imperfect & Sharon Martin

Happily Imperfect

Happily Imperfect focuses on helping you embrace your imperfections and develop self-acceptance and self-compassion. Many of us feel inadequate and like there is something fundamentally wrong with us. We try to feel worthy through achievements and being perfect. While perfectionism may seem like a good quality, in reality, it causes unrealistic expectations, relationship conflict, self-criticism, stress and anxiety, procrastination and sucks the joy out of your life. Self-compassion can move you away from criticism and toward a loving relationship with yourself and others.

This blog tackles topics such as:

  • Overcoming perfectionism
  • Setting healthy boundaries
  • People-pleasing
  • Codependency
  • Controlling behaviors
  • Assertiveness
  • Overthinking and anxiety
  • Self-criticism
  • Productivity and procrastination
  • Comparison and judgment
  • Self-worth
