Abstract/Contents:"I have done some soul searching and I have become aware of my shortcomings. Because I am self motivated, and fairly independent, I have developed 'perfectionist habits' that can be quite a burden. Perfectionists may accomplish a lot, but they never get enough done. High expectations are sometimes very frustrating. The need to be involved in all details, to be in 'control' is characteristic as well. When lack of control occurs, I tend to feel inadequate and very frustrated. These qualities tend to add up to self-imposed stress, which isn't all bad. I have learned to let go once in a while, by trusting in myself, and by a belief in God. I allowed humility in, and learned to be humble. Communication and achievement became easier and it made me feel good, thus reducing my stress. Stress reduction starts with knowing I did the best that I could do: laughter with friends, country music, reading, and exercise."
