The Perfection Deception
Why Striving to Be Perfect Is Sabotaging your Relationships, Making You Sick, and Holding your Happiness HostageBook - 2015
Most people mistakenly confuse perfectionism with a healthy striving for excellence, but there is a big difference. One can lead to great achievement or great learning, by allowing us to take risks, make mistakes, and forge ahead anyway. The other is a psychological wound that invites constant comparison with others, and traps us with all-or-nothing thinking that can paralyze us in a cycle of indecision, fear, and self-loathing. In this eye-opening book, Dr. Jane Bluestein shows us the truth about perfectionism.
