Unwinding the Damage of Perfectionism

A journey to finding balance through unwinding perfectionism.

The damage from being a perfectionist is the high energy output, and the need to unwind from it is vital for balance.

The origin of our perfectionism comes from somewhere-and with a personal cost.

I have unpicked some of the damage of perfectionism to be more balanced, and it remains an ongoing journey. Here is what helped me most:

Feel, Stop & Think.

Relaxing the Need for Control.

More to Love!

Questioning.

To unwind our perfectionism, we need a robust tool kit and self-love.

A few questions to ponder?

  • What did you internalise in your youth to fit in?
  • Are your coping mechanisms having a positive or negative effect on your life and wellbeing?
  • What would your adult voice say to your child voice now?
  • How do you view the timeline of your life-your achievements and your missed opportunities?
  • What have you achieved since your school days?
  • How do you ask for what you need, and do you know?
