15 Traits of a Perfectionist

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
  • No achievement is ever enough
  • 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.

  • A couple of weeks ago we got the privilege to cross something off our bucket list. Our friends, Nic and Adina,  Josefine and I always wanted to travel the world and eat at some of the best restaurants. We share a tremendous passion for food and all the beauty and hard work that goes into it. No better place than at the French Laundry to start this adventure. We miss them dearly and Salt Lake City won two of the world’s best!
  • Reading through Psalms and all of a sudden all those verses that are related to building families start to stand out!! Welcoming this new season! 
Psalm 128 - #thepassiontranslation

How joyous are those who love the Lord and bow low before God, 
Ready to obey him! 
Your reward will be prosperity, happiness, and well-being. 
Your wife will bless your heart and home. 
Your children will bring you joy as they gather around your table. 
Yes, this is God’s generous reward for those who love him.
  • June 01, 2019 @josefinefrendin, I do.

I take you to be my wife
To have and to hold
From this day forward
For better, for worse
In prosperity or as we wait for divine provision
In health or as we wait for divine healing
To love and to cherish
Till death do us apart

  • Sometimes life brings you something very special! A precious moment I got to share a few months ago interviewing this incredible winemaker and passionate man named Marty. Little did I know he would forever leave a legacy in me about faith, hope and never giving up in the midst of trouble. #motivationquote
  • Crazy past few days with the fire and evacuation of where I live! Been leaving the house with a P95 mask lately! Finally a Saturday where I get to do nothing! I miss normal air, blue sky and bright sunlight! Throwback to some sunny days! #wunderlust
  • When you get exceedingly, abundantly more than what you prayed for. A year ago she was adventurous enough to let me take her on a date! #datenight
