Meg Deak - Help for Perfectionism

Sep 05, 2019 10:34AM
How many people do you know who are constantly striving for perfection? They are anxious and they drive themselves crazy. They may even drive everyone else crazy, too. Perfectionism is when someone sets extremely high standards, experiences intense self-criticism and worries about what others think. High standards are important. It’s when our standards are always high or impossibly high and our internal critic is never satisfied, that we get into trouble. Letting go of perfectionism takes a shift in perspective and a shift in habitual patterns. We have to recognize damaging self-talk and challenge it. Will the world end if there is a dirty dish in the sink? It also requires releasing the buildup of tension that is created by being in a habitual state of “I have to.”  There is help to make these changes. Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) works to release the emotional charge of anxiety and overwhelming emotion, allowing you to shift into a calm, insightful state. You can then begin to dissolve the stories of fear that your body carries. You can rewrite them, creating new neural pathways of peace and contentment.
