What is Perfectionism Costing You?
When it comes to perfectionism, there’s a fine line between wanting to excel and fearing failure.
People with perfectionist tendencies habitually judge and measure themselves by what was not accomplished, rather than what was.
Another trait of perfectionism is being highly critical and judgmental, especially regarding themselves, never feeling “good enough.”
Perfectionism usually evolves into a vicious cycle of setting unrealistic expectations, which in turn leads to failure and worsens already low self-esteem. In this world today, we are constantly striving for perfection, and it seems like no one is willing to give us a break
The more a person struggles with and fails to meet their own expectations, the worse they inevitably feel about themselves. The harder a perfectionist strives to meet impossible expectations in an attempt to boost their self-worth, the more their self-worth suffers in the end.
My goal is to prevent and help you from becoming part of this downward spiral of regret and shame. If you are already at that point, I am here to give you some tools to battle this and succeed in this fight!

The Truth About Perfectionism
The hard truth is perfectionism can be very destructive. Not only to the individual but in other relationships as well. Here are a few truths about perfectionism you may not know:
TRUTH #1: Perfectionism is a negative behavior with a fear-based response to insecurity and uncertainty.
TRUTH #2: Perfectionism is not the same as striving for excellence.
TRUTH #3: Perfectionism is not the key to success.
TRUTH #4: Perfectionism makes you hold on to all the wrong things, such as how you think things should be.

The good news is perfectionism is not something you’re born with. You have the power to change your thoughts and behavior. I’m not saying it will be an easy journey, but you deserve to feel better about yourself and enjoy life!
