Following on from my article “Price of Perfection” posted recently.. A friend of mine, a past client, mentioned that a tendency towards perfectionism can come from shame. She and I both know that one! She recommended this TED talk from Brene Brown. I had seen it before and found it really helpful. Always worth another look when you have had problems in the past – they can try and sneak up on you again!
Have a look:
The Price of Perfection
I wrote this article from my own struggles with trying to be perfect – so I wouldn’t get caught out making any mistakes with ensuing pain and disgrace!
It was published by Woman Alive magazine in their May 2001 edition. It is reprinted by permission of Woman Alive.
