The Anxiety Series, Part IV, Conclusion, That Self-Inflicted Disorder, Perfectionism

 

Reasonable, Healthy Thinking:

– A person has an everyday goal of having one’s attire pulled together, looking presentable;

– Wanting to live in a safer, cleaner neighborhood;

– Eye-balling job tasks more than a few instances before turning in completed assignment to the boss when proficiencies are of import, and

– Parents sending their children to better schools so that offspring can have a quality educational experience.

 

Unreasonable, Unhealthy Thinking:

– Anyone who is anybody wears these designer clothes;

– Wanting to live at a certain zip code where “important” people reside;

– Failing to turn in job assignment to the boss within the deadline because worker is proofing to the extreme, and

– Parents demanding offspring receive all A’s on report cards.

 

These are foolish and damaging thought patterns and behaviors, which will result with somebody experiencing a mental health disorder.

Tabaka (2017) has a narrative about how perfection can wreck an individual’s mental health, and how dissimilar these traits are in comparison to high-achieving people in, 8 Signs You’re A Perfectionist (And Why It’s Toxic To Your Mental Health).
