Societal and cultural pressures can often make us feel like we aren’t doing enough and that our well-being doesn’t matter as long as we achieve the desired outcomes. As a result, many work tirelessly to succeed – to reach perfection – and even when that bar is reached, it’s still not satisfying. Such experiences can cause us to be self-critical and doubt ourselves, or simply be unhappy.
Our group works with clients to address the impact of perfectionism in their lives. Although perfectionism can interfere in several ways, procrastination, avoidance, and lower self-confidence are among the top issues that individuals face. Typically, treatment includes creating more reasonable expectations, incorporating self-compassion, and working toward relying less on external outcomes and validation to define self-worth. The goal is to get you back to feeling productive and successful – by your definition, not everyone else’s.
