15 Traits Of A Perfectionist

These are 15 common traits that would describe a perfectionist. Do any of those ring true to you?

  • You have no free time

  • You rarely give yourself credit when you do well because there’s always something more you could do
  • You blame yourself if things aren’t done just right
  • You can’t stand it when other people don’t do things your way
  • You don’t trust others to do as good a job as you do
  • You have to do more and more in order to feel accepted by others
  • You are critical of others
  • You can’t open up to other people
  • You procrastinate
  • You’re so afraid of failing that you never get started
  • If you can’t do something perfectly then there is no point even trying
  • You take everything personally
  • You get defensive when criticised
  • Sometimes you are so concerned about getting one task done perfectly that you don’t have time to complete the rest of your work.

Perfectionism is often driven by shame and fear. It’s a mask that struggle with perfectionism wear so as to receive their self-worth from others through their flawless execution and performance.

It says that you are no enough. How to let go of this mask and renouce the voice of perfectionism? I’ve started a whole series on it.

  • When I was 9 years old I was regularly told by my school teacher that the only thing that I would ever be good at would be to pick up trash. He was criticising a sprout without knowing the seed it was made of. I don’t know who has cut you with their words because they were blind to see the potential of the seed you carry. Today I urge you to have a deep belief in your own dignity, your worth and your own somebodiness. Don't allow anybody to make you feel that you're nobody. Always feel that you count. Always feel that you have worth, and always feel that your life has ultimate significance. Give the seed that’s inside of you the chance to grow up to its full potential. Be the best that you can be. #motivation

  • Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. 
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. 
We ask ourselves who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? 
Actually, who are you not to be? 
You are a child of God. 
Your playing small does not serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. 
We are all meant to shine, as children do. 
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. 
It's not just in some of us; 
It's in everyone. 
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. 
As we're liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others. - Marianne Williamson #lovingyourselfwell
