Perfect Harm: the violence of unrealistic expectations” – Rev. Eileen Wiviott

What do you do when you feel you’ve lost control? A natural response is to tighten your grip, seize up, and attempt to force the wheel of life to straighten out. In times of crisis, perfectionism is pronounced. However, expecting perfection of ourselves, each other or of life rarely generates transformative or sustainable solutions. What would a life-giving response to uncertainty look like? Can we lessen the immobilizing impact of perfectionism as strive to co-create a more perfect world?
