So many of us want to be perceived as being highly competent, even perfect, in everything we do. But trying to achieve perfection in all aspects of our lives is impossible and can take a huge toll on our health. There is a big difference between well balanced perfectionism and maladaptive behavior. Choosing which areas in our life we want to excel in, versus those in which we can be “good enough” is crucial for a good quality of life and this session will help you on your path to this.
