Any s found strategies for curbing the perfectionism/do-more-do-better drive, while also releasing self from the guilt/constant critic nagging at you that you're not doing what you should be?
I can force myself to take a night off, for example, but it always includes the phantom "shoulds" hanging around....
Is this the invisible, endless, mental labor of wife-and-mother-hood? Is this a 1 thing? Both?

@laurel_ann I think it's a lifelong battle, but if we create new habits, we can quiet the inner critic and it gets easier over time. At the same time integration for 1s means letting go as opposed to working hard, because spontaneity and chilling out don't happen if we're controlling the circumstances. 😁
