If you're struggling to find yourself, or just want a strategy for strengthening your self esteem, this is a great resource. Thanks to NetGalley for a copy of this book.

Are you looking for a book that says it's ok to spend time on yourself?  This book has some concrete ways for you to spend time on yourself, and how NOT to feel guilty about it.  We as women, are taught to put others before ourselves.  TO make sure that everyone else is taken care of first.  This book, tells us that it's ok, to stop and take time for ourselves.  Definitely one that we should all read and pay attention to.

This book takes an empathetic approach and gives bite size approaches and allows you to have kindness and patience with yourself when dealing with life. This is so necessary for everyone to read in life. Highly recommend. Especially loved the reflection to true life to humanize my feelings and relate. I received an advance review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.

I absolutely loved this book. Within the first few pages I already identified with the author and her experiences. As I was reading, there were some parts of the book that slowed down a little bit, and then in the next chapter ramped back up. Each example and story gave the reader another thoughtful way to challenge what they were already doing. The journal suggestions were helpful and had me considering if I wanted to allow certain behaviors and experiences into my life anymore. 

I truly appreciated that she wrote this book and encouraged her readers to connect with her further. This is definitely a book I will recommend to others.

I think I expected something different from this book - and I was not the target audience.

I found this a remarkably quick read, but mostly because it frustrated me. I didn't find much help and instead was bombarded with anecdotes about the author's life without much opportunity for application. Beyond that, I'm a scientist and there were multiple portions of this book with downright dangerous information. There was a section talking about how lack of self love gave someone cancer and finding self love cured it. Medicine cures cancer, not positive thoughts. This was the first of many sources of frustration throughout the reading of this book. 

I think this could use more actual scientific basis or more ways to apply the principles to the life of the reader. I gave it 2 stars due to the ease of reading and the fact that I couldn't pull myself away (though that wasn't for the best of reasons). Perhaps self help books aren't for me.
