I want perfection, but I’m an imperfect perfectionist. Oh yes, I know all about that!
Imperfect perfectionists live Life through mental starts and stops, imagining that they’ll do this or participate in that. It’s a chimerical mind drug to them, planning their phantom actions ahead to the minutest detail, and yet thwarting every effort as it comes up.
Most ideas don’t ever get more than a half-baked start.
It makes it easy to criticize the actions (and non-actions) of others. I, of course, being more perfect than you, would have done it this way!
And yet, at least they are doing something — where as I end up doing nothing!
What a funny little game we play with ourselves. Our mental games.
But perhaps if I identify my foibles and tendencies here, in advance, maybe I’ll be able to STOP in the middle of my actions, go back to a more stable, mature outlook, and actually GROW UP!
