  • Mood:
Blah so yeah last night I went and looked up Perfectionism, and yeah, the root of all my problems in life tend to stem from the fact that I'm a perfectionist.

Now don't get me wrong, there is a difference between a perfectionist and a "healthy achiever." A Healthy achiever sets goals slightly higher than normal so they work for it. A perfectionist sets unreallistic goals.

Being a perfectionist is not a good thing. I was really weirded out/feeling odd, because like every single one of my problems derives from the perfectionist thing.

I went to like 5 websites last night and every one of them was like a description of me. Gah.
