The Spiritual Lesson Your Perfectionism Is Trying To Teach You

Tanya Carroll Richardson, MBG

Perfectionism gets a bad rap. I’m a professional psychic intuitive, and when I tell a client I can sense that they have a tendency toward perfectionism, they will often respond by saying, “Ugh, I know! My perfectionism is terrible!” This kind of response only leads to feelings of shame and self-judgment.

If you struggle with perfectionism—at work, in your relationships, with your health, with your appearance, or even with your spirituality—you’re not alone. According to the American Psychological Association, perfectionism is indeed on the rise. But there’s good news: I’ve seen that being a perfectionist (or better yet, a perfectionist in recovery) can deliver some crucial spiritual lessons.
