Are you a perfectionist?
There’s nothing wrong with having high standards.
But, when those standards prevent you from living a fulfilling, happy life you may be a perfectionist.
Throughout my high school career, I dealt with perfectionism.
I would obsess over the details of my school projects.
The project would end up taking a lot longer than it needed to.
What helped me was keeping an eye on the bigger picture of the situation.
That mindset helped put my actions into perspective and to stop obsessing over details that wouldn’t matter much in the end.
