We are led to believe that if we could only look perfect and lead perfect lives, we'd no longer feel inadequate. So most of us perform, please, and perfect, all the while thinking, What if I can't keep all of these balls in the air? Why isn't everyone else working harder and living up to my expectations? What will people think if I fail or give up? When can I stop proving myself?

  • AMAZING!

    This book is a real game changer for those of us that suffer with trying to be it all, do it all, just to be accepted or liked. I am recommending it to several friends. I like that it doesn't focus on just the cause, and dwell in that, but more on acknowledging, accepting, and moving on. I really embrace her philosophy, and love the personal style to her writing. Its not judging, or preachy. Its telling her own tale as part of this, to show how much we all share in our suffering to try and be what we believe others want us to be, instead of who we are. Check it out.
