If you have to have brain surgery, you want a perfectionist doing the operation.
Have dinner at an expensive restaurant, you expect the chef to be a perfectionist.

What to do?

But not guilt, because you are imperfect.
Or worthless because you couldn’t bat 1.000.
Perfectionists often see themselves the way they think others see them.
That’s ego, not perfection.
