      I agree completely! Yet it wasn’t until my best intentions had my brain in fight or flight mode that I saw the sickening reality of it all. Before that, it was always “anything worth doing is worth doing well” as my motto. The problem was, I could not differentiate well= good enough from perfection=unattainable.
