How might perfectionism become a negative thing?

- Putting other things aside to make sure that one this perfect and how you picture it 

- Putting other things you want to be perfect at the expense of relationships

- When it is taking up all of your time and you are feeling lots of negative feelings around it including worthlessness because you just can't seem to get it how you want

Hey @j95! Well...we can't always be perfect Smiley Wink

Yeah that sounds right @cupcakes_032. Perception of perfectionism can definitely change depending on feelings and situation. One rainy day's mess can be perfect on a sunnier day

Next q!

 

How does perfectionism affect creative activities that you  might do (e.g. writing, drawing, dance)?

Re: But it has to be purrrrfect!

@j95that's a really insightful point about ignoring other commitments/relationships to focus on getting one thing to a perfect standard. Aiming for that one thing to be perfect can be a good goal, but it's important to maintain a balance between all of the aspects of your life (including taking breaks and self care)

Re: But it has to be purrrrfect!

Oh gosh. Where do I begin? I love to draw but the problem with perfectionism in drawing is horrendous. Nitpicking on tiny details like the lines being slightly too straight or shading too dark and not being able to reverse it is an absolute nightmare!
