ADVERTISEMENTWhen someone is a perfectionist, they don’t register that they’re trying to reach something impossible. Instead, they’re always striving to “do their best” while being entirely unreasonable about what their best should be.
No matter what they do, they consider it to simply never be good enough.It’s easy to see, then, where that unhappiness stems from.
When you’re a perfectionist, you deplete your positive thinking by insisting upon something unachievable. Worse still, it’s a trait that can affect people of all ages.
