“Love sometimes wants to do us a great favor: hold us upside down and shake all the nonsense out.” – Hafiz
Letters to a Perfectionist: On Shame, Fear, Love, and the Surprising Spiritual Nature of Perfectionism is my love letter not only to perfectionists, but to anyone who struggles with shame, fear, anxiety, and unhealthy image of God and self. Written from the heart and from my own experience...
I’ve traveled the world, climbed high mountains, and lived in a monastery, only to find out that the greatest wilderness is in the human heart, and the mysteries we seek to understand unfold only in the present moment. I write to understand myself and the joy and pain of life and love.
Some people are good with musical instruments. Some make their mark with a paintbrush. I've never been very good at either of those things, but words have always pierced me to the heart. All my life I wrote for myself and hid it away in drawers and notebooks. Now it's time to share.
I just finished reading Letters to a Perfectionist: On Shame, Fear, Love, and the Surprising Spiritual nature of Perfectionism, and highly recommend it to all readers. As a counselor and mentor, I am constantly on the lookout for materials to recommend and this book is now at the top of my list. Though perfectionists will benefit greatly from this book, I believe all of us can learn from Mr. Frizzell’s hard earned knowledge. Tad Frizzell’s book makes the reader feel cherished, while giving a clear path to self-understanding.

As I read your book, I felt like the letters written in this book were written for me. Perfectionism is something that I struggle with. I am driven by the need to over achieve and to have everything perfect and in control. There is that inner shame of not being enough. This book helped me closely examine what could have been the root cause of this need to be perfect and the negative consequences of this, I have learned so many wonderful things from this book but one I think I would really like to remember and to hold on to is just how powerful love is. What if instead of fear and shame, I hold on to love as the primary driving force of my life. Thank you for writing this book.
