Hello @aliali,

I appreciate your very honest, open post about perfectionism and the pain that it has caused you.

Do you have other friendships that you can cultivate, outside of your family? Can you join a support group for people like yourself?

I am 22 years, being the youngest in the family. I live with my family. Regarding joining support group, it lacks privacy.

I am still looking forward to reading your ideas
