Please ignore Razear, who is clearly insensitive to mental health issues. Perfection can be pathological in overachieving individuals, leading exceptional people to think that they are inadequate. Such issues might seem benign but they can quickly spiral into anxiety or depression if not mitigated. I suggest you read "When Perfect Isn't Good Enough: Strategies for coping with Perfectionism". I haven't read it myself, but in my program these issues are common and my first year facilitator insists it is an insightful read. If you are comfortable with being open about mental health, then the best thing to do is to see a psychologist and having counselling sessions. 

Good luck

A human's greatest fear is not that we are inadequate, but it's the fact that we are powerful beyond measure. We have the capacity to do many great things. However, do not use this as a motive to feel unsatisfied with yourself. Moderation is the key to feeling satisfied.

Love how the Mac Health Sci guy presumes I'm clueless about mental illness when I am an OCDer.

OP has an identity crisis or something. They're Tomsuzie and Null, claimed that they were Chinese, then white and now they're Tobi from Naruto. And then Goldman Sachs to a McDonald's. Not to mention their cryptic trolling.
