“The twin of perfectionism was people pleasing. It started with my parents…but then it starts to expand to just everyone so I think that by shedding the perfectionism and then the people pleasing, it just allowed me to do the things I want to do and not be so focused on what other people think.”

Tricia Bolender and I have a conversation on perfectionism, where it came from, how it affected our lives and overcoming it. We talk about the differences between living as a perfectionist versus accepting imperfection and the gifts it brings.
