Stuck in a Vicious Perfectionism Cycle?
The Impossible Need to seem Perfect—or Perfectionism—often lives hand in hand with anxiety.
Anxiety is a normal human response to a perceived threat and at one time, our ancestors heavily relied on this innate response to warn them of possible danger ahead.
Most of us experience varying levels of anxiety from time to time and to some, anxiety can actually be motivating. However, anxiety can become problematic when we constantly perceive a threatening situation when there isn't one. Persistent, misfired anxiety tends to be future oriented (What if this happens? What if that happens? What will people think?) that is rooted in not being able to predict or achieve a desired outcome.
