Day 7 No Striving Challenge – You might be a Perfectionist if…

Perfectionism gives us a sense of control. When things look and are presented perfectly on the exterior, we are given the illusion of feeling we have everything under control.   There are common Perfectionistic traits that can keep us striving to present the perfect outward picture.
