I have always been aware that I am an extreme perfectionist. Recently I have realised it affects every aspect of my life more than I would like to admit. If I don't comtinually push myself I feel that I will become lazy. When I am interacting in the big wide world people are amazed at what I have achieved. I have not met my goals and usually dismiss the compliments.
My goals in life may seem a little basic to those not suffering from mental illness. My 2 goals in life are to hold down a full time job and obtain my drivers license.
Strangley the penny dropped when at a family gathering and mum asked me how I wanted my steak cooked and my partner said PERFECT-we all had a good laugh!!
