“The combination of depression that comes from addiction to perfectionism or completely hidden depression.”

Because you hide your depression behind your success. Stress will gradually build up and eat away at you from the inside. From both self-expectations and expectations in society
You never give yourself the opportunity to break free from the cycle of perfection. You walk away every day with the phrase, “You must do better than this.” It's better to do it this way. It's an endless loop. These are the things that create pain. Losing the freedom to live your life as it should be can lead to hidden symptoms of depression without you even realizing it.

A study conducted by Dr. Thomas Curran, a psychologist and professor at the University of Bath in England, illustrates the dangers of exposure. A perfectionist says that the root of mental health problems is that which can lead to…frustrated Because of his intense attachment to perfection. Until it becomes a source of anxiety and pressure for you and your co-workers. There is also a risk of developing bipolar disorder, or bipolar disorder. Sometimes it's good and sometimes it's bad. Which also occurs due to excessive anxiety.

In addition to the negative effects on mental health, the fact that a person seeks perfection also has a negative impact on physical health. Especially accumulated stress, which may lead to various physical diseases such as high blood pressure. Which can develop into many other serious diseases
- Spending more time at work than necessary
Another negative effect that arises from being a perfectionist at work is that these employees tend to spend more time than necessary at work. Because he was too concerned with unnecessary details. Or some people may be people who worry that they are not prepared enough for the job. Wait for the right moment before taking any action. So unfortunately good opportunities are missed
- There was a lot of pressure on myself. Coworkers and subordinates
In addition, it also has a negative impact on co-workers and subordinates who work together because they are idealistic employees who are committed to perfection. In addition to putting pressure on yourself, you can also spread this pressure to your teammates. Or pressure is placed on subordinates in the team at the same time, which affects the general environment of the company and this may develop into a major problem later.
Adjust your mindset and reduce the stress of perfectionism.
Whether it's yourself being an overly perfectionist, or perhaps a co-worker or boss you work with, you have a human tendency. Too much “precision” to the point that the atmosphere in the workplace becomes more tense than necessary. It is starting to negatively affect you. This problem can be dealt with by starting with development. “Adjust your way of thinking” by
- Let's look at the big picture of the business. Instead of just looking at errors and small details that may not affect the overall work much.
- Instead of putting pressure on yourself and your team to do the right thing all the time. Try to believe that everything could go wrong. Every problem always has a solution.
- Look at problems from a new perspective. What does this story teach us? How can we develop this further?
- Always have a backup plan to deal with anything that may go wrong.
- Try to set small, easy goals during your project. Instead of focusing on the big goal when the task is completely achievable. This will help you and your team appreciate the small successes along the way, and it's a huge morale booster.
- Learn how to have compassion for yourself and others. Because this will help reduce hardness. Including irritation, stress and tension caused by perfectionism.
However, perfectionist work is work that uses the drive to achieve perfection. Even if it makes the work come out flawless but it can create a great deal of stress for yourself and those around you. He is precisely a human being and has distinctive characteristics that have good and bad effects on work, which are as follows:
- High responsibility…but…often over-commitment to work that may affect relationships with others
- Pay attention to every detail…but…push on yourself and those close to you.
- Develop yourself in one field until you become skilled…but…like doing things over and over again, don't accept new things, don't listen to anyone's opinions.
- It's one of the characteristics of a CEO…but…afraid of making mistakes. Lack of creativity Not daring to make decisions due to fear of not being able to accept mistakes
- Good at working under pressure and challenges…but…gets stressed easily, does not “relax”
It can be seen that the perfection that was used in that work helps to make the work very effective. But if there are too many, it will interfere with life. Relationships with co-workers Family and close people can If you focus too much on perfection, mistakes will happen. Disappointment will lead to depression and may be a buffer for suicidal thoughts.
Therefore, self-adaptation is very necessary for humans in particularChange your mindset to learn how to let go. Don't compare or put too much pressure on yourself. It is similar to bringing the Dhamma to suppress the mind, gradually letting go and accepting the essentials of the world and its possibilities.
Every time something went wrong, I blamed no one but myself until it spread and created stress for those around you. You should talk to someone close to you to vent. And start listening to the opinions of others. Do not forget to forgive yourself. Then use other people's perspectives to improve yourself.
Anything wrong can be fixed. Always have a backup plan. When we let go of the pressure, it's time to accept that everyone makes mistakes. No one is 100% perfect. But when you make a mistake, you should fix it, not run away from the problem.
Use pressure and manage tension to reach the finish line under the motto “Goals must be achieved” but we will go about it wisely. If you are a team leader it is a good opportunity to use precision in working with a team, helping each other in the work, and helping to check the quality of work. And don't forget to encourage your subordinates.
Don't forget to look for a little happiness around you. Because they work perfectly. Most often, it inhibits creativity. So much so that some people may be unhappy at work. Try to leave a little space. Are you looking for ideas for happiness in the workplace? Or do a fun activity after work. Going out with coworkers is a good idea.
The need for perfection or whatever if it's too much to deal with, it will cause more harm than good. Because besides putting us under a lot of stress it also affects the people around us who we love and who love us. Therefore, whether working, studying or living, one should adhere to the middle path. Doing whatever is appropriate is best.
