Let's call perfectionism what it really is

I've not posted a link before, I hope it works.

This is amazing and quite liberating. I think that most of the symptoms I experience are rooted in fear.  It was my abusers who instilled that fear in me. I should feel no shame for feeling the feelings that I feel.

I hope by shining a light into to dark places within me will drive out the negative energy and feelings.

Hi Snookiebookie,
Thanks for sharing this - I watched it, and it really resonated as a good way to describe perfectionism.  I related to it a lot, and part of me responded in an emotional way - it's thought provoking for me.

I am also trying to 'feel my feelings' and get in touch with them. 

Your link worked perfectly by the way. 

Hope  :)

Short but sweet and healing message :thumbup:

Perfectionism is the lie that says there's a rent you have to pay to be on this earth... But it's not true. You don't have to be perfect to be here - or even good. You're allowed to just be.
