I am my own worst enemy. I am a perfectionist and I am very, very hard on myself. My current self abuse I can blame on blogland. Now, I love more than anything to read everyone's blog. I pour over the pictures, analyzing every detail. I print pictures, keep notebooks, folder upon folder of favorites. What's the problem with this? Seeing the beauty you all create makes me second guess myself and what I really like and don't like. I have to remember that just because it's on a blog and it gets 100 comments doesn't make it pretty and vice versa.
For example. I am painting the spare room in an effort to make a "mom" cave corner. I hate the color. Hate, hate, hate. It's Glidden Barely Jade. The chip shows a lovely blue, green, grey. The walls, are blue. Just plain, boring, baby blue. Atrocious. What makes me hate it even more? Because none of you have used it. I love the color in my laundry room because Layla at The Lettered Cottage used it, so it has to be a great color. Our den color was approved by Young House Love. Our living room colors come from the very amazing Monique Keegan as seen in Country Living and owner of Enjoy Co in Granville.
The spare room...some crap I picked.
Why do I do this to myself?
Are you hard on yourself like this or should I seek help?
