I’m back for another installment of my Hungry for More series, and this week I’m talking about a chapter that resonates with most people: Hunger for Perfection. So many of us strive for perfection, but we fail to realize that by its very nature, perfection is unattainable, and trying to achieve it can lead to self-criticism and negative self-talk. In this episode, I discuss how to get past perfectionism and seek and embrace our own humanity.
