The reality is that perfectionism has recently become a growing concern in our Society. We are often told about the importance of doing different activities or behaviours in certain ways or that is important not to make mistakes. These growing societal expectations can contribute to perfectionism. Of course, there are other factors that might contribute to developing unhelpful perfectionistic tendencies, assumptions or even beliefs.
