I don't know if I am gaining control of my perfectionism or I am fearing my own immortality, but I have really started to embrace the idea that it's ok not to finish something. I'm not talking about the huge list of life things that go undone... I'm talking about my previously unyielding need to read a book from start to finish, watch a series from first episode to last, watch a movie from beginning to end... that kind of thing.
In the past couple weeks I have turned off two or three movies after the first hour or so, skipped around in a book I was reading, and abandoned more than a few tv shows before the end.
Yay me!! It's like getting time back in my life that would be lost otherwise!
Battling compulsions one crazy tic at a time...
What about you? Can you stop before the end, or are you compelled to finish?
