You know how “perfect” is supposed to be the ultimate compliment? 🙋🏻‍♀️

You LOOK perfect! 😍
Your WORK is perfect! 👍🏼
Your KIDS did perfect! 🏆
Your HOME is perfect! 🏡

Then one day you wake up so exhausted from chasing perfection that you chuck it all out the window…but then you get so afraid of NOT being perfect that you scoop it all back up and try again tomorrow?

If you haven’t guessed it, today’s podcast episode is all about perfectionism.

Perfectionism is more than meets the eye.

For many, it began as a tool in childhood to stay safe and fly under the radar.

Perfectionism is also celebrated when people have perfect grades or perfect attendance.

This can quickly shift to those perceived to have “perfect bodies” with higher value within societies.

We will talk about how perfectionism is rooted in fear—fear of being wrong, fear of not being “enough,” fear of messing up.

It takes practice and understanding to turn towards things like self-kindness and self-compassion to drive away perfectionism.

Perfectionism is a common struggle, but it’s not insurmountable. With the right tools and understanding, many can break free from its grip.

I hope this episode leaves you feeling empowered to navigate away from perfectionism in a way that’s right for you.
