A guy shared how he has always been a perfectionist in everything that he does and finds it hard to accept anything that is not up to his standards.
As a result, he lost many friends throughout the years who cannot stand his attitude and his way of getting things done.
He now has not much friends left, and is seeking advice on how to change his perfectionist attitude as he does not want to be without friends to go through life experiences with him.
Here is the story
“I have this habit of doing things with utter perfection. Maybe, I just can’t take criticism or maybe its my perfectionist attitude that makes me want to do everything super nicely.
As a result, many friends have fallen out with me throughout the years.
All of them before parting ways with me have told me that though they admire my character of being serious in my work and trying to always make my work perfect, they do not like my perfectionist attitude in terms of my friendship with them as friendship is all about give and take.
I can understand while they think that way but I just cannot stop myself from having this kind of perfectionist mindset even for the most trivial things.
Years have passed since I last had someone which I can really call a friend and I feel like I want a change to stop this perfectionist mindset and character of mine.
How do I stop being this way???”
Editor’s notes: You just have to accept the fact that there is no such thing as a perfect world.
