Brandilyn Tebo, life coach and author of recent best-selling book The Achievement Trap, wants to help achievers, overachievers and perfectionists find freedom from perfectionism, people pleasing and dependency on achievement. She understands how prohibitive low-level emotions, like dissatisfaction, disappointment, shame, and guilt, can be on our ability to live the lives we want.

Advice to Former Self
I would tell her that the world is waiting for her to let go of her shame. The world is waiting for her to stop trying to prove anything and just be herself. And that every little part of her is lovable, every perceived flaw and inadequacy is actually what is most lovable about her and there are so many people out there who will love her exactly as you are. All those things you tried to suppress and run from are what are most lovable about you.
Definition of Recovery according to Brandilyn Tebo
Willingness to love yourself exactly where you’re at.
