Don’t Be a Perfectionist

The perfectionist tends to seek perfection in every aspect of their life, including their relationships. Perfectionists often have many issues that develop in their personal lives because of these unattainable goals. By setting impossibly high standards, the perfectionist cannot help but find disappointment and flaws in every relationship. Their obsessive behavior often creates unsustainable levels of negative energy in their relationships. Not being satisfied with their own accomplishments most perfectionists tend to dismiss praise, advice, and compliments from their partner. This naturally can be quite frustrating to their loved one. Their relationships also suffer when the mate is unable to sustain the level of positive feedback that the perfectionist requires. Thus to succeed the perfectionist must learn to accept flaws in themselves and others, and their spouses need to offer strong re-assurance that the perfectionist is loved, even if they are not perfect.
