Social Workers often have a lot riding on them doing their jobs well. I think we all, to some extent, feel the weight of our jobs as part of society’s social safety net. If you are a Social Worker or helping professional that also contends with anxiety, your ability to cope can be diminished by a sense that perfection is required.
So, for anyone that may find themselves falling into the perfectionist trap; I dedicate this meditation to you. I created it for myself to use during particularly stressful times. If it is helpful to you, please use it. If you would like the file emailed to you, just let me know.
Anyone else struggle with anxiety from rigid self-expectations? Let me know how you deal.
