Perfectionism

“No wonder I’m a perfectionist – always hoping that if I do things well enough I’ll finally feel loved and accepted.  So much of my activity is driven by pain: if I can just do it right, I won’t hurt anymore.  The trap is that it works – temporarily.  For a short time I do feel better, but then self-criticism sets in again and I need to accomplish something else – perfectly.” ~ Robert Kull, Solitude

“Perfectionism is self-destructive simply because there is no such thing as perfect.  Perfection is an unattainable goal.  Additionally, perfectionism is more about perception – we want to be perceived as perfect.  Again, this is unattainable – there is no way to control perception, regardless of how much time and energy we spend trying.” ~ Brené Brown, The Gifts of Imperfection
