Do you put a lot of pressure on yourself? Have you ever considered why that is? Maybe you watched a parent put a lot of pressure on themselves. Maybe they directed it towards you. Perhaps sports and competition introduced this thinking. Maybe it’s ADHD and the pressure helps you focus. Perhaps you’re worried that if you let off the gas everything will fall apart. Or maybe, the deep ferocious compulsion to be perfect, is actually protecting you from debilitating feelings of worthlessness.
