Address The Root Cause
Finally, along the journey, you’ll have to get to the root of the problem by finding out what’s causing these high expectations, the perfectionism, and the fear of failure. It’s not always fun to talk about, but so many of us struggle with worthiness and feeling as though we’re good enough- exactly as we are.
When you fall into the trap of proving yourself to others, or feeling as though what you DO is what makes you valuable- you’re more likely to fear what happens when you can’t control/maintain this status quo.
There are so many tools to support you in your journey including therapy, talking with friends, sharing your story, listening to others healing journey, and more. Do what you need to do to make inner changes now. You are good enough exactly as you are, and it’s time to believe it!
