Perfection Self-Worth Flaunt04-12-23 Perfection, Self-Worth, and Affair Recovery

If you are anything like most of the women I work with, you are an amazing woman who tries hard to do things right. You’ve done the heavy lifting in your relationship, responsibly taken care of everyone and everything that needs taking care of, and you’ve always done your best. On the outside, you probably appear to be confident too. But are you worthy of messing up? Do you feel worthy of being a hot mess, making mistakes, and being angry, ugly, and a wreck? Shocking as it seems, that’s what true self-worth is about. Unconditionally loving and accepting yourself in the bad, dark, ugly times. After all, it’s easy to appreciate and love the good. Can you appreciate and love yourself in the bad?

Top take-a-ways:

  • The false construct of success, perfection, and achievement and how believing that “Because I’m worth it” is empowering, when it really keeps you locked in perfectionism.
  • Understanding why so many of us seek to make others happy and aren’t even aware of who we are and what we want.
  • How to “be the cake” instead of the “icing” and learn to validate and appreciate yourself instead of seeking to please others or making everyone else happy – and not you.
  • Why other people’s opinions of you are none of your business.
