Anything worth doing is worth doing well. Practice makes perfect. Winning isn’t everything, it’s the only thing. Failure is not an option. In today’s perfection-obsessed culture, these are the maxims we live by. Yet, the damage that they cause is stifling. Renowned author and pioneer of codependency treatment Ann W. Smith knows this first hand, having spent the last thirty years studying the impact compulsive disorders have on individuals and families. While perfectionism lacks much of the stigma attached to today’s most common compulsions—smoking, gambling, sex addiction, alcoholism, and drug abuse—many of the negative connotations on self and the family system are the same. In this audiobook, readers will learn how to identify and confront the root cause of their problem, how to reveal and accept their essence, and finally, they will learn the importance of forgiveness and letting go. Additionally, readers discover the key characteristics of a healthy family system, along with the single most important lesson of all—perfection does not exist.
