So many truths in this gem of a book, if you are ready to let the ego fall away and hold the mirror up to your true self. If you dig deeply and honestly, you will bring to light your own methods of self-protection that actually sabotage your personal growth by hiding the real, vulnerable and beautiful you behind the facades.
Most of us have learned to live behind the facades of what we believe an ideal daughter should be, ideal mother, wife, friend, worker. We strive to feel accepted and appreciated and loved in those roles and we do so by creating methods to avoid our pain from past hurts, often unaware we are even doing this.
Let's get real and be who we are without fear of judgment from others. Let's choose to be happy even if our life circumstances suck, even if we are tired and struggling, and even if choosing to be happy means letting ourselves feel all of the uncomfortable feelings that come with life. Because when we feel them we let them go and can tread forward more lightly.
Let's be imperfectly human instead of an array of Instagram stories that, when you dig deep, only serve to feed one of our many facades.
