5 helpful blogs for perfectionist business owners
Overcoming your perfectionism is not easy. At all.
It’s a coping mechanism you’ve been carrying around for so many years and very few people really GET what it’s like to be stuck in perfectionism.
It’s no wonder that many of us recovering perfectionists feel like letting go of perfectionism is a lonely experience. I know I have felt very much alone in my journey.
But there are people who DO get it. People who have gone through the same things you’re going through now. People who share their stories, experiences, and strategies over on their blogs.
These 5 blogs are absolute must-reads for every perfectionistic creative business owner out there.
Sound good? Let’s do this!
Ashley and Jenna, the lovely ladies behind Eff Perfect, ask the question every perfectionist needs to hear: “What if your worth were unconditional?”
These ladies are on a mission to inspire and empower women to love themselves wholeheartedly, regardless of imperfections. Through their blog and podcast, they give the middle finger to perfection and they won’t give up until you break the cycle of dependence on external approval and are free from the paralysis of perfectionism.
The Recovering Perfectionist
The Recovering Perfectionist is all about bringing you along on the search for an imperfect life filled with joy, connection, and authenticity.
Paige is a nonprofit executive by day and a blogger/recovering perfectionist by night. With her honest stories and vulnerable blog posts, she takes you along on her journey of creating a life that is less focused on perfectionism and achievement and more focused on connection and joy.
Sasha and I have lots in common. Like most perfectionists, we both used to think that perfectionism was our superpower. Until we took our blinders off and realized that perfectionism was holding us back in so many ways.
I love Sasha’s message of rebelling against your inner perfectionist + revolutionizing your life with joy. Because all we want is to feel empowered to be ourselves, like really, truly be ourselves.
Sam Laura Brown
Sam Laura Brown is a personal growth and lifestyle blog designed to help you become your best self. When she couldn’t find any blogs she could relate to, Sam decided to start her own blog as an outlet for her personal development obsession.
Sam is very open about her perfectionism and she shares many stories about her struggles with being a perfectionist and procrastinator, along with helpful tips and strategies to get out of your own way and get over perfectionism and procrastination.
The Imperfect Life
The Imperfect Life® is your quarter-life thrive guide and a powerful movement celebrating imperfection. Kerry helps you say no to the pressure to tick certain boxes and start listening to your own, most powerful instincts instead.
I love this blog’s mission of helping you become a pro at hunting imperfection instead of pursuing perfection. It’s about celebrating your flaws and not trying to hide them.
