How Perfectionism Hurts Relationships

How Perfectionism Hurts Relationships | Romantic Relationships | Scoop.it

This is a long and dense article but it has a very important message.

 

In these days and age of compulsive obsession with self image and success, many of us are lured by the pursuit of perfection rather than by the pursuit of happiness.

 

But strong perfectionist traits usually prevent healthy relationship formation.

 

It matters to be aware of our imperfections, but it also matters to accept them.

 

Here's a short takeout from the article for the most impatient of us, but you should read the whole article (click on the image or on the link on the top), it's pretty damn good:

 

- Perfectionists spend most of their time dreading the next potential failure

- Perfectionists are often hypersensitive to perceived rejection or possible evidence of failure

- Partners of perfectionists often comment on their partner's emotional unavailability

- Perfectionists can be fiercely competitive, even with their partners
