I'm reading a book right now called the gift of imperfection --- there is an entire chapter on how perfectionism is not a good thing in ANY way. You are lucky someone shared that insight with you and that you heard it. :)

Omg, this is awesome. I actually have a similar post about how perfectionism harms your relationships and mental health (based on my experience). My other blog is down right now, though, so I cannot share it 🙁
