Perfectionism is based on an obsessive belief that if you run carefully enough, hitting each stepping-stone just right, you won’t have to die. The truth is that you’ll die anyway & a lot of people who aren’t even looking at their feet are going to do better than you & have fun.

It can also stem from feeling responsible for others: if we do everything right, they won’t die. My son died anyway.
