58: How to Protect Your Marriage from Perfectionism: A Fan Favorite Replay

Perfectionism can be a complete relationship killer. And unfortunately, it is also very common. I counsel many couples in my practice that deal with a pattern of perfectionism in their relationship and as much as I hate to admit, I’ve also dealt with it in my own marriage. 

So, how do we safeguard our most important relationships from the trap of perfectionism? 

In this episode of Couch Time with Amy Wine, I’m sharing a replay of one of my favorite episodes with you. You’ll learn my thoughts on perfectionism and the best tips for how to keep it from hurting your relationships.

In This Episode, You’ll Discover:

  • Why perfectionism can paralyze you
  • How your marriage is impacted by perfectionism
  • The ways perfectionism can affect your work
  • How perfectionism blocks authenticity in relationships
  • Why self-care is critical to giving grace to others
  • Ways to reframe what you say to your spouse 

I hope that these tips will help you the next time you are facing perfectionism. Take the time to ask yourself what is underneath the frustration you are feeling so you can show up in a more loving way – for yourself and for others.
