How many of us fail to pursue our goals, dreams, and intentions due to fear of failure?

How many of us will wait until we can do it “right” before ever making a move?

You’re not alone, and it could be a sign that you’re caught in the trap of perfectionism.

This week we discuss the signs of perfectionism and how to set realistic expectations for ourselves.

Dr. Menije Boduyran -Turner explores the use of routine, and self-compassion, as tools against “the inner-critic”. We also learn about “the emotion wheel” and how it is a common tool used by therapists to expand our self-compassion.

Dr. Menije Boduryan-Turner is a licensed psychologist in private practice in Los Angeles, CA, specializing in the treatment of a variety of mental health issues, including but not limited to obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and related disorders, addiction, and codependency.
