How to feel gratitude as perfectionist

Today I read an article on practicing gratitude. I read a couple of such articles already and I do irregular meditations on gratitude. Still I found this one incredibly on the point, especially as it’s focusing on people who are perfectionists. If the following sounds like you, read the full article:

You might be thinking, “What exactly does this have to do with me?”. Well, chances are, if you’re a perfectionist, you:

  • always focus on what you don't have vs. the abundance that you’re surrounded by
  • always want the next thing instead of celebrating how far you’ve come
  • focus on the future or worry about past rather than being present

Living as a perfectionist means you’re often paying too much attention to what’s wrong instead of being grateful for what’s there.
