What impact does social media have on most people’s desire for perfectionism? Are people so vastly unhappy because of the false perception of “perfection” and the constant drive to be perfect? Consider these ideas relative to every facet of one’s life: college/higher education, relationships (family, friends, spouse, significant other, etc.), employment, hobbies, leisure activities, etc. What is more important, being perfect or being happy?
