Whoops! Is One of My Favourite Words: Defeating perfectionism so it won’t defeat us!
Making mistakes, being corrected, being told you’re wrong, losing … these are common triggers for increased anxiety and unwanted behaviour. Why? Simply because we forgot we are ‘human beings’ and not ‘human doings’ – we think we are worthy based on what we ‘do’ and feel bad when what we ‘do’ is criticised!
The messages in this book share with children of all ages (0 to 100+) that we are all already perfect just for being us. We learn that what we do will sometimes be perfect and sometimes not – and that every mistake we make is simply a learning opportunity! Our doing might not always be perfect but OUR BEING WILL ALWAYS BE PERFECT
