Perfectionism.  How does it affect us, our relationships and our life in general?

“Perfectionism at its core, isn’t about high standards.It’s about fear.  Fear of failure.  Fear of looking stupid, fear of making a mistake, fear of being judged, criticized, and ridiculed” – Marie Forleo

My guest today, Valerie Cantella, shares with us that she is a recovering perfectionist.  Looking back, she can remember that even as a young child, she had the tendency to live a perfectionist lifestyle. 

Valerie shares her journey of recognition and recovery and has so much wisdom and knowledge to share on this topic of perfectionism.     A must listen to episode!

Valerie is also the author of Off-Script, a mom’s journey through adoption, a husband’s alcoholism, and special needs parenting.

Perfectionism can cause us to want to manage the universe, feel like everything must be done properly and in the right order and it is also the catalyst of seeking approval from others.

George Fisher quotes, “When you aim for perfection, you discover it’s a moving target”

One of the symptoms of perfectionism is procrastination.   In times of transition, this can become a difficult hurdle to jump as decisions need to be made, and perfectionism will prevent us making those necessary choices as we process our transition.

Valerie Cantella, shares so beautifully her journey of becoming a recovering perfectionist and share her wisdom and insight to help you walk this path and become victorious.  There is hope!
