There are some people who are perfectionist: one who cannot accept anything short of high standard or perfection itself. There's also a saying that "nobody's perfect" and that "to err is human". There's even the lyrics of the song "Love Me For What I Am" by The Carpenters that say: "The picture of perfection Is only in your mind" What's you idea of perfection? Is the picture of perfection only in our mind and not possible in the real world? What areas of your life where you demands perfection? Are you a perfectionist? Image source: psychologytoday.com

I used to think the word perfectionist didn't apply to me. However, I have come to realize that there is one area of my life where I do strive for it - my writing. I know it isn't perfect, but I work hard at making it the very best I can. Now as to the rest of my life - not so much.

Perfection is represented by GOD Only God, is truly perfect for excellence! No human being is perfect. Everyone has their own merits, but also their own defects! Speaking for myself, I absolutely am not a perfectionist!
I have high expectations from the people that I hire. I hire them based on their qualification and I belie it's normal to have high expectations. But I don't believe I'm a perfectionist since I too make mistakes. But I do make sure I don't make the same mistake over and over again.
I stop being a perfectionist. I accept my own imperfections and the imperfections of other people. I accepted the fact we live in an imperfect world. It makes you feel easy and relax if you know that not all things can be perfect all the time

Yes sometimes I am being a perfectionist. I wanted to do things well, free from errors. But I keep on reminding myself to settle on the good ones already, coz sometimes, I can't move on from what I'm doing anymore. I am stuck with one thing coz of this perfectionism issue.haha
