A point I missed in this post:

When it comes to being an adult who has taken on this burden, it is crucial to understand that you are co-creating the scenarios where you feel imprisoned or restrained by accepting the burden of perfection. If you feel resentful towards others, know it is you who creates this scenario and only you can reverse it by dropping the burden.

They are who they are, let them be.

Instead of feeling entitled to be given space for your imperfection or waiting around for others to give you permission, claim it.

You do this by giving your inner child the permission and creating space for it.
