When a Perfect Woman Falls from Grace: And How She Found the Light
Perfection is inescapable and all consuming; it is a part of all socio-economic classes and all cultures. Perfection is ingrained in the way we look at each other as we attempt to discern whether we meet the expectations and desires of others, and whether they will love and respect us. Linda Sue McCall was no different. Without realizing it, she gave up her identity and self to meet the expectations of others. Her past traumas and ignored needs invaded her life, producing fears and creating feelings of powerlessness to change or escape a multitude of challenges. Linda was on a mission to be a perfect woman; she gave herself up to others for love and acceptance, which ended in destruction. In "When a Perfect Woman Falls from Grace" she demonstrates what it means to be "a perfect woman" and how to learn to trust and begin to gain strength, self-love, and balance. With her personal stories of struggling with perfection and her years of helping others as a licensed clinical social worker, Linda Sue McCall offers processes, therapies, and messages of hope to guide others trapped in cycles of perfection out of their own darkness and into the light of a new life.
