I choose to be happy! As a recovering perfectionist, it has not always been easy, because I used to focus on an issue's negative point and overlook all the positive ones. Perfectionism used to stifle my creativity and my ability to have good relationships during my youth. It helps that overall I am an optimistic person by nature, so I know how to look at the glass half full instead of halfway empty. I also learned to find the good in all people. I hate to admit it, but I will avoid pessimistic people, because it is easy to be sucked into their negativity. However, I will listen to them and help them find the positive in situations if they choose to seek help. A major influence in my life has been my faith in God, which was instilled in my by my parents at an early age. I know that I can do anything, if I just stop being afraid and believe in the strength, courage and wisdom that can be found in Him.
