Trying to be perfect is bad for you!

kati morton perfectionism youtube

Perfectionism is a personal standard to strain compulsively and unceasingly toward unattainable goals and to measure their self-worth by productivity and accomplishment.

There are many ways it can present itself in our life. Here are a few that I see most: black and white thinking, being critical of ourselves or others, having unrealistic standards or goals, self-sabotage or procrastination, and depression and low self-esteem.

There are many things that we can do to better manage these feelings! They are: recognizing when it’s happening and if there are certain scenarios or situations that trigger it. Second, allow yourself to not fully complete things or allow them to be imperfect. Next, notice your self-talk and if it’s negative, talk back to it with something positive. Last, delegate when needed or necessary! Meaning let people help you!

I hope this was helpful, I know we all struggle with these urges from time to time. Please share the video! You never know who it could help. xox
