WHY DO WE BUY INTO THIS “DO-IT-ALL”/”BE-IT-ALL” LIE ANYWAYS?
Maybe you haven’t considered yourself an anxious person, but if you peel back all the layers of the onion here, there typically is a grounded state of anxiety.
Anxiety over what?
Well, since anxiety is fear; fear or apprehension. It’s defined as intense, persistent or excessive worry of what might come or is to come. It could be fear of not being enough, fear of not doing enough, fear of being discovered as an imposter, fear of not measuring up, fear of being too needy, fear of not being capable or smart enough,
One reason we do it all and try to control it all is because we are often afraid of being quiet enough or still enough to be with ourselves.
We keep ourselves busy with achievement, performance, productivity so that we can earn our worth, earn our place, earn our right to be loved or admired, etc.
A few reminders for you:
Your worth is not based off your performance.
Your worth is not what you do, how you look, how much money you make. Those things are empty and will fail you, no matter who you are.
Your worth was considered world-moving by God.

HOW TO STOP DRINKING THE TOXIC KOOL-AID
Be aware of your surroundings and of your priorities. Understand the voice perfectionism in your mind, and what it really means. Keep a guard on what you put into your mind. Challenge yourself to be honest about the self-imposed stress you feel. Dig deep to understand the role of pride, pressure, faith, fear, and doubt and where the come into this equation for you. Understand that if you don’t get off the treadmill of craziness, you will run yourself into brokenness, emptiness, and dimness. Consider being in the world, but not of the world, and that the status quote just doesn’t work.

LISTENER OF THE EPISODE
(Hali, from IG)
Hi Trish! yesterday I happened to stumble upon your podcast. The first episode I listened to was Why Perfectionism Prevents You From Being Confident. it was amazing!!! Everything you spoke about pointed straight to me. The way you described your struggle with perfectionism was like looking in a mirror. I resonated with almost everything you listed as to what perfectionism is. I knew I was a perfectionist, but I didn’t realize how much perfectionism controlled me nad how unhealthy of a relationship I had with perfectionism. I have the tendency to base my worth off my performance and didn’t even realize it. I’m so glad I found your podcast! Thanks so much for sharing your struggle with perfectionism! You have opened my eyes and now hoepfully I can begin a journey of letting go of my perfectionism!
