Me.
Good Grades, Projects, Student Council, and the Stupid Promenade made me soooo stressful. I escaped Reality with that.
Seriously, It's hard being a Perfectionist. You always want your work to be sooooooo good, It hurts T^T

why be a perfectionist if you can never be perfect?

im don't get too stressed, although im a perfectionist. its just that, it wastes a lot of time especially when it comes to assignment time because sometimes if you don't manage your time properly, u get caught up on one assignment O_O

good luck.

btw, you spelt "stressful" wrong

Perfectionism is usually used by people if they want their work to be 'Good', or maybe 'Too Damn Good'. They want their whole self to be Good, they're almost perfect.
Yeah, they don't seek perfection, dun worry

You have to draw the line between being idealistic and not settling for anything that is mediocre.

Besides that, I think this thread is valid for discussion, and is different that the thread posted by Your Typical Friend.

I've been a perfectionist lately, and I did manage to get great marks, but I'm behind in school now...

I totally agree!! I was before like this..and on the long run this becomes stressful especially when you haven't attained what you wanted to..

I've a quote that i really like and tat has really changed my point of view concerning being perfectionist:

Excellence is the goal...not perfection!!!

So perfectionist guys, please apply this and you're life will be better..believe me..
