"In my work with helping persons manage the challenges of self-esteem I have found it much more difficult to have persons who are "Good" come to find acceptance in being "human" than helping those with low self-worth rise up to the possibilities of self-acceptance. "

Being "Good" - its something we all strive for, to varying degrees. A lot of people kind of strive to hit the place of "good enough".
OCPD sufferers, however, don't define "good" the same as most. To be truely "good" at something, its a elevated idea of perfection that, in the end, doesn't really happen to humans here on our messy planet. It might be good to remember, that accepting the imperfection of being human is what has the power to make us truly happy.
