Give yourself permission not to have everything perfect........that is the first step to over coming the perfectionism. Start with small things, ie, putting away the silverware, how you organize stuff etc. I am very organized but not a perfectionist but DH was and it was a horrible thing to live with. Procrastination can be an awful trait as you can beat yourself up for not taking care of business. BIG stuff. Talk about it and be honest and take charge. Good Luck!
