You constantly seem to be defending yourself, but the more you do, the more entangled you become. Worse yet, and infuriatingly, the perfectionist drowns you in corrections that can derail you from addressing the main problem. You say you get out of work at five o’clock, and the perfectionist corrects you by saying actually you get out at ten minutes to five. You say you haven’t made love in two weeks, and the perfectionist corrects you by saying technically it’s been thirteen days. You claim you left a note on the bulletin board in the late morning, and the perfectionist says no, it was in the early afternoon.

While a perfectionist may, for example, want to clean the house first thing in the morning, someone who’s less of a morning person might want to wait until the evening.
