In the required reading, the interviewer asks Dr. Sarno about our drive to be perfect: Patients often ask me, “Do you want me to start being nasty?” and I say, “No.” I simply want them to understand that the drive to be perfect angers the unconscious. Once the person recognizes that this is what is happening, they no longer automatically react to pressure with anger and rage. They no longer need the distraction of physical pain. I can accept that I'm a perfectionist, I know this, but I'm having trouble with understanding the drive to be perfect. I only say this because despite what I think I understand in this regard, I still find myself reacting to situations with anger and rage. How does one go about changing this mindset?
