I struggle with perfectionism in my marriage Well, actually that's a partial truth. I do struggle with perfectionism in my marriage, but not just there. I struggle with perfectionism everywhere, I always have. I thought, however, that I had overcome it. That I had finally reached contentment with being imperfect and had fully embraced my flaws in all of their glory. I thought that until…well until I got married. How did I figure that one out? Lately, I've found myself frustrated. It took me a little while to figure out the source of my frustration but once I figured it out it made sense.
