Show Notes

Allen and Thom discuss the origins of perfectionism, from a perspective of our natural need to be loved, to be accepted and to belong, and how, for many of us, it takes on a life of its own as we grow up. Emphasis is on unrealistic expectations that form when normal coping mechanisms are left unchecked and how the curse of perfectionism comes from individual traits as well as cultural and familial background.
