When trying to understand perfect love, one can look for any of these indicators, just to name a few:
Is what you’re doing of benefit to yourself alone, or does it benefit God’s plan as well?
Is what you’re doing bringing you closer to God and those around you, or does it separate you from the two?
Is what you’re doing loving and beneficial to everyone, or is it harmful or injurious?
