Motherhood – “There’s No Such Thing as a ‘Perfect’ Mom”: Overcoming Perfectionism

Are you a perfectionist? What does “perfectionism” really mean? How do we know if we’re struggle with perfectionism? What’s the problem with it anyway? I’m talking with perfectionism expert, Sharon Martin, LCSW, psychotherapist author of the blog, Happily Imperfect,” and we’re sharing our best strategies for how to identify and overcome perfectionistic tendencies, unrealistically high expectations, and how to untangle self-worth from what we do, or don’t, achieve. How can we accept our imperfect moments? And what can we do to instill in our children a stronger sense of self-worth so they’ll strive for “progress and not perfection,” as well? Tune in and find out!
