She was …

… right.

A conversation yesterday about anxiety and a question posed, it is about perfection? Is the expectation around perfection the trigger for anxiety when perfection is not met? Well isn’t that an interesting thing to consider.

I have seen an expectation for perfection and setting out how things should unfold cause distress when things did not work out as expected.

The trigger, what is it and identifying it is the key to continuing the conversation and then working on reducing the impact of anxiety.

Spent some time today thinking on this and seeing things a little more clearly. Written down it is easier to see a link, but putting the notion to the test is the key.

Anxiety … a conversation that continues.

Perfection and the growing need for it … a conversation that also continues.

Perfection
