i have a small case of perfectionism. small enough that i don't notice it so much, but big enough that those around me do. school work is where i try the hardest to be perfect. i feel like i must. i'm naturally a good student, so if i don't try to be perfect then i tend to slack because my confidence tells me i can do that. as long as i am trying to be perfect, then i get excellent grades and that's nothing to be ashamed of is it? my biggest downfall with it is that if i don't get an a on a test i do tend to beat myself up over it. because i know i didn't try my hardest. i really don't see anything wrong with trying to be perfect. i mean how can it possibly be a bad thing. it just keeps us on our toes, as considerate, compassionate, intelligent human beings. what's wrong with a human race that does well? i mean obviously we aren't perfect so there's no use getting upset with our faults either, but i surely will continue to try to be the best person i can be, which means trying to do everything perfectly.
