Episode 2 Topic: How to Understand and Let Go of Toxic Perfectionism

On the Plant Your Seeds Show, we share vulnerably about hard topics to support and bless women leaders who are healing and transforming after trauma or crisis has occurred in their families, marriages, careers, and/or businesses.

~ Donna Marie Johnson, @leadlikeaqueen

In the future, I plan to interview some leaders who have been in your shoes and who are sharing vulnerably, too. So, stay tuned for updates later this year.

For now, you’ll be hearing me share on topics relevant to your journey as a leader.

I am glad to be back for season 3. My time away gave me time to deal with some of my own issues so that I can be a better help to you. One of those is perfectionism… I divorced it. I’ll talk about how to begin understanding toxic perfectionism and how to manage it on this episode. (For background, have a look at the blog article I wrote about it at the link above.)

Key Phrases:

  • Contentment v. Complacency
  • Continuous Improvement
  • Gratefulness
  • Staying Present
  • Love for Self and Others
  • Trusting God
  • Understanding Grace
  • Living from Your Core
  • Complexity

This podcast seeks to dig deeper on this topic of perfectionism than what was shared on that original blog post. What part of what I shared helped you the most? Send me your comment (click here).

Key Scripture – re: Living from Your Core

“I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.”

~ John 17:23 (NIV)

Key Questions:

  1. What support do you need with understanding how toxic perfectionism is impacting your life and relationships?
  2. Which tools can you use (or use better) to support you in your journey with ridding your life of perfectionism?

Recommended Tools:

  • OneNote app (any device)
