Perfectionism is something many of us have ingrained in us from an early age. It’s the need to be “good”, to aim for perfection, to please others and put their needs ahead of your own. As females, we’re taught to be soft, compassionate and caring, even if that means ignoring your own desires and needs, and pushing yourself to the point of burnout and exhaustion.
This syndrome can also increase your likelihood of developing disordered eating behaviours. When this need to be the “good girl” turns into a need to look “perfect”, or be of a “perfect” weight and size, this can be a slippery slope into eating disorders and disordered eating patterns.
In today’s episode of Holistic Health Radio, we explore how you can stop aiming to be “perfect”, and instead embody a strong, capable person who feels able and empowered to ask for your needs to be met, and to establish boundaries with those around you.
