"I have very high standards
and if I can’t meet them, no
one will love me."
Overvigilance and Inhibition
The expectation that expressing one's emotions, feelings, or impulses is wrong, shameful, or embarrassing.
Throws out high standards altogether and settles for below average performance.
Avoids taking on work tasks; Procrastinates.
Attempts to perform perfectly; Sets high standards for self and others.
If you're not first, you're last.
Nothing I do is good enough. I can always do better.
When I make a mistake, I deserve strong criticism.
