    Giving + Receiving in Relationships

    Giving + Receiving in Relationships

    In all relationships, there exists a balance and a tension between giving + receiving.

    Understanding our unique set points and comfort levels within that balance — or imbalance — is essential to truly knowing ourselves and understanding how we operate in relationships.

    For us perfectionists, people pleasers, conflict avoiders, approval junkies, and worthiness seekers, the ratio of giving to receiving can easily get waaayyyy out of whack.

    In the episode, we explore the meaning we make around giving + receiving, how giving + receiving make us feel, and how to avoid the trap of overgiving while finding our ideal balance between giving + receiving in relationships.

    Get ready to receive the goodness coming your way.

    Follow Your Creativity with Emma Boshart

    Follow Your Creativity with Emma Boshart

    As perfectionists, we love a plan.

    Steps laid out in advance ✅

    The illusion of control ✅

    Minimal opportunity for uncertainty or failure ✅

    Sounds pretty freaking good, right??

    The thing is, it doesn’t always feel good.

    And we miss opportunities for…

    Surprise ✨

    Spontaneity ✨

    Intuition ✨

    What if, instead of “perfect” plans, we were guided by our creativity?

    That’s the path that today’s guest, copywriter and content strategist Emma Boshart, has opted for, and we are pretty freaking inspired by it.

    In our conversation, Emma shares what it takes to be a multi-passionate badass who — over and over again — courageously chooses the creative path.

    Confidence is a Renewable Resource

    Confidence is a Renewable Resource

    Confidence can be a sticky subject for so many of us in the Eff Perfect fam, especially since perfectionism, people pleasing, and approval and worthiness seeking are all barriers to building confidence.

    The good news for us recovering perfectionists… ⬇️

    Confidence is a renewable resource and a learned state of mind.

    We can borrow confidence from the areas in our lives where we feel secure to bolster the areas in our lives where we feel vulnerable.

    And when you swap comparison for compassion, your capacity for confidence becomes limitless.

    Deconstructing Identity with Theresa Tirk

    It’s frighteningly easy for what we do to become who we are, especially for us people pleasers, worthiness seekers, and productivity obsessives.

    How is a recovering perfectionist supposed to navigate the minefield of identity?

    Our guest this week, Theresa Tirk, breaks it all down for us, from constructing and deconstructing identity to the differences between labels and roles.

    We are more than just the labels we claim — perfectionist, people pleaser, partner, mother, daughter, friend, etc.

    To reclaim your unique identity, press play and join us for this empowering and enlightening conversation.

    Intuitive, Compassionate Goal Setting

    Intuitive, Compassionate Goal Setting

    Is it even possible for a perfectionist to set goals that are realistic, not perfectionistic?

    The answer, thankfully, is YES.

    To temper our perfectionistic tendencies, all we need to do is add in a few key items, i.e. ACC.

    Awareness

    Curiosity

    Compassion

    And just for good measure, let’s throw a little intuition in there, too.

    Get comfy and join us for a gentler approach to change, growth, and goal setting in the new year.
