Perfectionism is something that many people struggle with. When it comes to a blended family, we can feel pressure to have the “perfect” family. This, of course, is an unrealistic expectation.

 

In this episode, we discuss the questions to ask yourself to determine if you are a perfectionist, examples of what perfectionism looks like in a blended family, and what steps you can take to overcome perfectionism, which involve

  • recognition and forgiveness
  • self dialogue
  • surrender
  • sense of humor

 

Perfectionism is definitely something that can improve over time, thereby improving your quality of life, and the quality of all of your relationships.

  • length of the relationship

  • how many children are involved, and how would they feel if there were a breakup
  • how many years before you are empty nesters
  • what type of issues are you having, and can they be resolved
