Episode 319: How To Cure Your Addiction To Feeling Behind

While perfectionists want everything in their lives to be perfectly organised, the irony is that they actually stop themselves from creating this reality – without even realising it! And one of the reasons they do this is because of their secret addiction to feeling behind.

In this episode I’m talking about why we do this, 2 signs that you’re secretly addicted to chaos and what to do about it.

  • Why perfectionists can become addicted to feeling behind
  • The sneaky ways perfectionists make themselves feel more behind
