In this episode we hear from two therapists about perfectionism and how it is a major obstacle to long-term recovery. Director of MARR’s Women’s Center Cailey Binkley and a therapist from the community, Bianca Hughes, share how they have seen the unattainable goal of perfectionism continually undermine long-term recovery and meaningful connections to others. They also talk about how they both see themselves as people who need to address perfectionism in their own lives. Perfectionism keeps us separate, and letting go of perfectionism is not a one time thing—it is a practice.
