Watch out, perfectionism is sneaking up on you!

Perfectionism is often rewarded and praised. After all, who doesn’t want things to turn out well. But expecting yourself to do things perfectly without a flaw or a mistake is not the same as doing your best. Perfectionism is not striving for excellence; it is about having unrealistically high expectations of yourself. If untreated, perfectionism leads to anxiety, worry, guilt, and shame. It is linked to codependency, people-pleasing, and feeling disconnected from oneself. If you want to learn more about perfectionism, check out my self-study course here.
