We have the May 2018 Go Love Yourself spoilers! The theme is PERFECTIONISM.
Note from the Founder
I had this crazy moment during my somatic coaching class on Friday when we were discussing our presence and how we hold ourselves, physically, around others. I felt compelled to speak, but terrified to do so. I started sharing and immediately heard my voice start to crack.
“I make myself small and quiet. The smaller and quieter I am, the more unseen I can be. If I’m unseen, then I can fly under the radar. I won’t be judged. I can’t be revealed as incompetent…but I notice a lot. I see everything. There’s so much I want to say.”
“Strong introverts do this,” the facilitator responded, “and this is a strength. If you’re quietly watchful, you can be more caring and supportive of those who may otherwise go unseen. But be careful. Strong introverts who want to be unseen may explode under the pressure of keeping it all in.”
I know this comes from a place of perfectionism.
And I know perfectionism effects us all in different ways.
Most of us know perfectionism isn’t the goal, but it doesn’t make it any easier to not be a perfectionist around certain aspects of our lives.
I hope you’ll join us in May to think through and feel through how perfectionism is affecting YOUR life, Debbie. What is it helping you to do? How is it holding you back?
We’ll be reading The Gifts of Imperfection, by Brene Brown (pictured above) and there are a few more teasers below for you.
Last day to order for May is today. Forward this email to your best girlfriend who you know needs to practice a little more self-compassion and get her in on the conversation. Or order one for mom. We all know mom could use a little less comparison and a little more self-love.
It’s time we give ourselves the permission we need to be ourselves.
You deserve to feel that sense of relief.
Can’t wait to get this conversation going,
