My Perfectionism Journey
Hi, I'm Dr. Christina and I'm a ‘recovering perfectionist.’ I fell into the perfectionism trap of trying to be the perfect daughter, perfect student, perfect employee, have the perfect body, act perfect, and ‘live perfect.’ And much of the time, I felt perfectly miserable!
I lived the If/Then trap of “I’ll be happy if, I’ll be confident when….” I frantically pursued happiness, fulfillment, and finding true meaning for my life. But no matter how much I tried—I couldn’t get ‘perfect enough.’
I never reached perfection (nobody does!), but instead, got mired down in common perfectionism traps of self-criticism, overwork, exhaustion, and feeling empty inside. I felt trapped in this vicious cycle. Then, finally, I learned to free myself, broke free, and never looked back! Now I want to share these invaluable tools with you.
Trust was one important tool I discovered. I learned to trust myself, trusting and allowing my emotions to flourish, allowing myself to be vulnerable and authentic was truly life changing.
I am here to help other women who are mired in self-criticism and self-judgment, afraid of being lost forever in the Perfectionism Trap. I have the tools, and will help you get out of that trap—for good.
