I have always been a huge perfectionist; that’s something that will probably never change. In some cases it has actually been beneficial. I did really well in school because it was important to me. I didn’t just do it for the grade (although that helped), but I did it because of what I believed it said about me as a person. It showed that I’m a hard worker and I’m dedicated to the things that I really care about. And quite frankly, I couldn’t settle for a B when I knew the A was possible. The funny thing is, I actually got a lot of crap from other people for working so hard in school. “Grades don’t matter after college anyway. It’s all about who you know and job experience”, they would say. And now I feel like I get similar remarks for eating healthy. If I get a grilled chicken salad at a bar instead of a mountain of nachos or a cheeseburger and French fries, people look at me like I have three eyes. Like I’m some kind of crazy person because I don’t particularly want a 1,500 calorie meal at the moment? — or ever, really.
