I’m a perfectionist, and it’s something I’ve struggled with since at least high school. It mostly affects me in my work life, and it affected me immensely when I was in school. I’ll never forget getting a “C” on my first legal writing assignment in law school. I remember crying in my car after class… Continue reading Inadequate
