THe BurdEn of Perfectionism ThE FifTh: The Terror of Human Vulnerability
I’m not a perfectionist (probably an Idealist… slightly different) but I connect with perfectionists at the sheer terror of being vulnerable before God and others. Rather, I’ve learned to put other things – accomplishments, etc. – between me and God to distract God, others and even myself from noticing, “I’m not enough.”
The blessing of surrender – “Here I am!” “There you are!” – has brought a new level of peace to me.
