Many people strive to be the best that they can be. You should be able to deal with not being perfect every time. If you have a problem with this there may be something that can be done to help. Recommend to speak with your doctor for treatment or referral. Counseling and/or meds may help.

It sounds like you're ready 2 say goodbye 2 your inner critical slave master. But s/he's been around a long while, i'd imagine, so i'd expect it 2 take some time 2 get her/him out the door so 2 speak. Consider taking a look at this handout: http://bit.Ly/12tngio. I suspect a careful psychological assessment for anxiety problems & associated conditions could be very big help. Expert coaching, too.
