Perfectionist get stressed up easily.

Me and Zhang Yao Dong from Mediacorp.
Was very lucky to meet him today when I went out with my family.

I enjoy the life when I wake up from a deep and good sleep everyday and I know what to do for my day. This is called post exam syndrome! I always have a long list of things to do for the time after my exam. I will make sure I make full use of my holiday, charge back my battery. Goodbye JC1. Hey you, JC2, I am ready for you. :) My psychology course taught me that one of the tips to release stress : Never expect too high. Expect less from people. It makes it easier - not great, just less upsetting. One point here is sometimes it is not expectation from others that kill you, it is your own expectation.

The physician himself, if sick, actually calls in another physician, knowing that he cannot reason correctly if required to judge his own condition while suffering.
ARISTOTLE, De Republica

But a perfectionist stress on every minor thing. How to ask perfectionists to expect less from people, expect less from their own? So is perfectionist = stress?
I guess this is a fate for every perfectionist out there. Unless you have decided to, not to be perfect anymore.
