Hi,
We can't all be perfect, just do your best is all you can do.

Hugs Midnight, I’m in a similar situation. In order to gain my biological family’s love, I must be seen as perfect and set impossibly high benchmarks for me to succeed.
For the most part I consider myself okay despite this and the fact I’m falling way below their expectations. I live with the adage my old therapist taught me “blessed are those without expectation for they are never disappointed”... something I figure my family could learn.
