Places to go! People to see and things to do! Busy, busy, busy. My life. Yours too? Is this a result of always needing to perform? Would you consider that your drivenness has something to do with shame? Perhaps you are striving for perfection, for recognition or for acceptance. As kids if you haven’t felt loved for who you are but rather for what you do, this could set you up for a life of striving (Most parents do their best but it’s a tough gig). But you might have felt driven to be good, better, perfect. Bit of an illusion isn’t it? Being driven is related to shame, not feeling worthy or good enough.
