Are you a perfectionist?

I have found that some people in life are perfectionists. They don't allow any mistake existing in their daily life and they try to do their best to avoid any errors that may happen at random.They always want to get everything just right, usually conscientious and rational,critical and rigid. I suppose they must be very tired and many facts have evidenced that. According to Harvey's saying,'They refuse to try activities rather than risk failing,and consequently fall into a pattern of underachieving.' Sometimes I feel myself a perfectionist for I also do my best to ensure there is nothing going wrong for something. But there also exits something with blemish in nature.Sometimes just take it easy. So I am a near perfectionist at most. What about you? Are you a perfectionist?

I am a perfectionist with a sincere desire to be perfect. Luckily I keep "falling" short. I have three small children who remind me every day that I have very little control. I used to be much worse than I am now. I am grateful to my children for mellowing mom out. But I still demand that they keep their rooms clean and dress well.

I think what you mean is happiness for I am still single at present. Congratuations! Just share the happy life with your children. Some strict methods in educating the children is necessary for their growing better. You must be a very good mom, I suppose!

Hehe, maybe you should try some activities to avoid these bad stuff? Why not take it easy when there is something going wrong for not always all things are going all right. What you should do is to try to handle these stuff with heartease and you can add experience in dealing with similar kind of things happening unavoidable in time crossing.So Can I ask you a question? Are you feel tired or disappointed when you just let there stuff alone and everything still in a mess.

No, I am not, I am just an ordinary person, as long as ordinary people can not make mistakes, if requested writing will live very tired.
