Nearly everyone has a touch of wanting to do things well and or even perfectly if possible. Perfectionism, however, takes this desire to an extreme. The “perfectionist” has a painful habit of trying to live up to impossible goals and ideals and feeling like a worthless when falling short. It is not the same of having goals, setting high standards and wanting to do the best one can to achieve them. It is an unrealistic view of one’s self and the realities of life in which you believe you actually can and should always be perfect or you’re an utter failure.
