26. Overcoming Perfectionism with Dr. Menije Body Justice

    • Mental Health

Listen to episode #26 to hear Allyson and Dr. Menije discuss all things perfectionism, and how Dr. Menije helps others embrace imperfection. Learn about how perfectionism is at the root of many psychological conditions including eating disorders, OCD and high functioning anxiety, how it is exacerbated by systems of oppression including capitalism and how we can begin to undo the harms of perfectionism in our lives.

Dr. Menije is a leading expert on overcoming perfectionism and building an authentic life. As the founder of Perfectionism University, an online platform for self-help courses on breaking up with perfectionism, her goal is to create a community where we can all unlearn Perfectionism and start our journey of embracing imperfections and owning our enoughness.  She knows firsthand how perfectionism can lead to anxiety and disconnection from self. She had her real awakening once she read the “Gifts of Imperfection” from one and only Dr. Brene Brown. She realized there was a name to what she was suffering from. She was seeking perfectionism because deep down, she thought "I wasn’t good enough." Now, Dr. Menije speaks relentlessly on many platforms to share her personal story combined with her clinical training as a licensed psychologist to help women break up with perfectionism. She knows one can be a prisoner of their perfectionism. Her hope for you is that you turn the judgment to compassion and ultimately live a life where you embrace imperfection rather than striving for perfection.
