Perfectionism prevents you to do things and constantly postponing them, and wastes your time under the same pretext.
Perfectionism may be considered a positive thing by many people, while perfectionism leads to a waste of time and energy and a decrease in self-esteem.
Perfectionists believe that they want the best out of everything, on the other hand, they say either everything or nothing, and this causes many delays in performing any task, so they procrastinate on any issue until the deadline for doing it is over. And at the end they wasted both their energy and their time and the same thing has not been done.
Wanting to have the best of everything is everyone’s desire, but the difference between perfectionists and other people is that they want things that are not realistic. They do not measure their desires and it is just an unrealistic desire.
To treat perfectionism, consider the following:
- Change the way you think
- Stop thinking 0 or 100, all or nothing
- Stop comparing yourself to others
- Do not judge yourself
- Try to enjoy the route
- Please decrease your standards
