I have a guest post up today at my friend Mary’s site Giving Up on Perfect. I’m talking my own version of perfectionism and why I always thought I was just plain weird. I’d love it if you’d go read it!
I’ve always thought I was a pretty strange person.
I fit into many of the categories you ascribe to firstborn children … overachiever, bossy, serious perhaps to a fault. But there was one area where I never knew quite where I fell: perfectionism.
In some ways I am an uber-perfectionist. I worked as a copy editor, which requires an eye trained for detail and rules. When I am serving others my cooking, I freak out if everything doesn’t look like the cover of Southern Living.
