“I was held captive by perfectionism.”

A short but vivid description of one woman’s struggle.

The writer gets so much right:

  • that it’s a trap
  • that it often begins in childhood
  • In high school: “I sat before my Spanish teacher in tears over a B+.”
  • Heavy involvement with ballet, an endeavor that “required excellence.”
  • As an adult, a perfectionist approach to housekeeping.
  • “Self-worth based on performance and how others perceived me.”

Worth reading.
