As with any addiction, changing habits and compulsive behavior isn’t always so easy. But it’s entirely possible to have high standards and realistic goals without the compulsive, driven quality of perfectionism and without the destructive side effects, as well. My ebook “I’m Not Perfect – I’m Only Human” discusses different types of perfectionists, from positive perfectionists to narcissistic perfectionists, how their relationships are affected, and the common myths they hold. Other disorders, such as OCD are distinguished. Psychological, genetic, and environmental causes of perfectionism are explained with typical symptoms, thoughts, and behaviors. Ten chapters lay out the steps and detailed exercises to overcome perfectionism and achieve self-acceptance.
Take a personality test, and get parenting tips to avoid passing on perfectionism. 10 Steps to Self-Esteem: The Ultimate Guide to Stop Self-Criticism as well as my webinar, How to Raise Your Self-Esteem to provide simple steps to raise self-esteem and end self-criticism.
