Is it possible to be so much of a perfectionist that instead of being super in control of your life you're so obsessed that you're paralysed and can't get anything done out of fear of it not coming out the exact way you want it to?

Same problem, bumping for help.

Only thing I know is that I'm so scared to be happy (at the point that I actually feel bad physically) that my perfectionism is probably acting in between, to avoid me reaching happiness.

No OP, that's being lazy not a perfectionist

Perfectionists do
Lazy people are lazy, out of fear or out of will.

Lazy is lazy, you can't change that


Stop the excuse

Yep, that's definitely a thing. Work is about getting it done, op. Make a good draft first, something you don't like b/c it's not perfect, a good try. Or do a practice run. Then, edit and edit, improve and improve until your time runs out. At the deadline, your perfectionism needs to be locked in a corner, and you need to deliver some result. You need to get it done, or turn it in, in whatever shabby shape it's in.

This formula is how I manage my own perfectionism.

yes. i wouldn't call you a perfectionist though, perfectionist does imply that you do it. but there are tons of people like you, who don't end up doing anythign with their lives and then chalk it up to 'lol im a perfectionist'.

i new a pretentious group of filmmakers who over the course of ten years never released a single thing because 'were perfectionists and making sure it comes out perfectly'.

so dumb
