    RISE ABOVE perfectionism.jpg

    "I call perfectionism ‘the 20-ton shield.’ We carry it around thinking it’s going to protect us from being hurt. But it protects us from being seen... When perfectionism is driving us, shame is always riding shotgun and fear is the backseat driver.” - Brene Brown

    Are you a self-identified perfectionist? Call yourself "a little OCD"? There is a difference between healthy striving and perfectionism. Perfectionism comes in the form of negative self-talk, feelings of inadequacy, worst-case scenario worry and possibly even depression. It can affect happiness, self-worth and relationships. If this sounds like you and you're wanting reprieve from the endless chatter, this program is for you. Learn ways to stop the noise, set realistic standards and nuture self-acceptance.
