Quotes from Brene Brown here: 

When perfectionism is driving, shame is always riding shotgun, and fear is the annoying backseat driver.

We struggle with perfectionism in areas we feel most vulnerable to shame.

All perfectionism is - is a way of thinking that says if I look perfect, work perfect, live perfect, I can avoid or minimize criticism, blame, and ridicule.

All perfectionism is is a 20 ton shield that we carry around hoping it will keep us from being hurt, but in truth it keeps us from being seen.

It depends if I've got a worthiness crutch going on...healthy striving is internally focused, perfectionism is not about what I want, but what will people think.

You can't ever do anything brave, if you're wearing the straightjacket of what will people think.
