Straight forward and good info about root causes for anxiety. But, you sure are not to blame or shame your parents. This is all generational.

Progress not Perfection

You don't have to be perfect to get better. Let me say that again: You don't have to be perfect. Not at all. I grew up trying my best to be perfect. I tried my best to be the perfect son, the perfect brother, the perfect friend, the perfect artist, the perfect person in recovery, the perfect person ad nauseum! Now in my 60s, I know that's not how life really works. “Striving but never really arriving” is not recovery. It's not living, either. Be in the Now, appreciate baby steps, be grateful that you are here, and maybe--just maybe--you’ll begin to be a little calmer than you were five minutes ago. Sometimes, being calmer for even a minute is good enough for me. “Progress, not perfection” is what this practice is called in the many, many support groups I've belonged to. Taking one step, just a bit at a time, toward freedom. Steady steps will lead to bigger steps. I know it’s hard, especially if you’re thinking of “perfection”. But with “progress” as your point of focus, it’s completely doable. JC <3
