What is perfectionism, really, and where does it come from? Brooke and Kel come at this topic from quite different perspectives.
Brooke is a reforming perfectionist who takes issue with the idea of a ‘perfect’ anything, while this year Kel published a book called Practical Perfection. So when the topic of perfectionism came up recently the girls had two immediate thoughts: 1) why hasn’t this come up before? And 2) this is gonna be interesting.
Recently Brooke had a big lightbulb moment, as she realised her perfectionistic tendencies had actually been holding her back for years. It was only when she actively began shedding the idea of perfect that she was able to make great strides in so many areas of her life that had been stuck for years.
Kelly, on the other hand, has become very adept at managing her perfectionism, rather than trying to banish it completely. She also is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to the different types of perfectionism, how they effect us (and those around us) and the different strategies needed to either manage or move away from them when they become damaging.
