In a recent interview on Fox 2 morning news I was asked about “Millennials and Perfectionism.” Here’s a link if you missed it.
A new study in the Psychological Bulletin says young people are more likely than any other generation to feel the pressure to be perfect.
As a therapist who works extensively with adolescents, families and couples this is my take on perfectionism, why Millennials feel the need to be perfect and what to do if you find yourself getting out of control with an irrational desire to be perfect.
If you or someone you know struggles with pressure to be perfect, it may be time to seek professional help. Seek a licensed professional counselor (LPC) for an assessment.
