How I stop letting perfectionism hold me back by Allie Tymo #perfectionistproblems

Hi friends, Wendy here! Welcome to the #perfectionistproblems interview series. My mission with The Gratefulist is to help creatives let go of their perfectionism and embrace their perfectly imperfect selves.

I’ve personally learned so much from other people's perfectionist stories and that’s why I’m sharing these stories in a weekly interview series on the blog, in the hope of helping you deal with your perfectionism. Reading about personal experiences is a powerful thing and I believe there’s so much you can learn from these stories and insights.

Today, I’m very grateful to share Allie Tymo from allietymo.com ‘s perfectionist story. Over to you Allie!

4 things you can do when you're stuck in perfectionism

4 things you can do when you're stuck in perfectionism

I’m not alone in my struggle with perfectionism. I know many of you face the same struggle every day. A difficult conversation with a loved one, an impending deadline for a passion project you’ve poured your heart and soul into, receiving criticism from your boss about a report you’ve written… they can make your inner perfectionist come out in full force.

There are things you can do, though, when you’re stuck in perfectionism and you feel this urge to perfect, perform, and please. I'm sharing these strategies over on Bianca Bass’ wonderful blog.

Hey friend! As you know, there are a ton of resources on The Gratefulist Blog helping you to leave behind the perfectionism hustle through breaking down what perfectionism is and how it negatively affects you and outlining why letting go of perfectionism is so important.

But I’ve never really shared why perfectionism affected me so much and how it became a coping mechanism, like it does for many creatives. That’s why I'm sharing my story over on the Grit and Glitter podcast.
