Many have a desire to perfect some aspect of their lives and there is nothing inherently wrong with having high standards, but for some people the search for perfection can move from being a desire to being a need. This can drive compulsive behaviours that masks our true desires and needs. In this episode I talk to Joanne about her struggles with perfection, her realisations of her own behaviours, and how she overcame her perfectionism. It is a lesson in masks and finding who you truly are.
In this episode you will learn:
- the many faces of perfectionism
- the root cause of perfectionism
- the cost of needing to be perfect
- how to begin to overcome perfectionism
