I feel a breakdown coming but I can't stop

DEAR HARRIETTE: Lately, everything has been feeling like too much. I’m a perfectionist, so I’m used to trying to be the best at everything — the best grades, friends, family, etc. My friends keep inviting me to have fun, and I feel a compelling need to say yes even though I’m exhausted, because I just want to keep up this perfect facade.

Even though it’s summer, I’ve gotten a jump start on studying for my AP courses for next year. I feel like I’m going to burn out, but I also feel like the world may collapse if I’m not perfect at everything.

I need to learn to let myself take a break, but I don’t know how to. What should I do?

Perfectionist Drama

DEAR PERFECTIONIST DRAMA: You are a perfect candidate for therapy. I strongly recommend that you seek out a therapist who can help you walk through your behaviors, emotions and sense of urgency and help you choose to make decisions that can positively impact your future. Perfectionism is a way of living for some people, but as you are experiencing, it can be exhausting and is ultimately elusive.

Get some help to sort through your life and strike a better balance with your interests, responsibilities and desires.
