“Katie Horwitch is the queen of self-empowerment.”— Liz Moody, host of the Liz Moody Podcast and author of How to Build Your Best Life
I’m not good enough. Not smart enough. Not talented enough. We all do it. Belittling who we are, what we do, what we stand for—often without even realizing it. And it's stuck on a loop. Yet if shifting our toxic self-talk was as easy as repeating positive mantras, we’d have done it already. With Want Your Self, Katie Horwitch offers an approach for deep and lasting change—a guide for becoming fluent in an inner language for loving who you are while growing into the person you were meant to become.
In Want Your Self, you’ll find step-by-step guidance for finding, being, and staying your Self in this increasingly chaotic and complex world. Horwitch shines a compassionate light on the seemingly everyday moments that define your narratives and unpacks your inherited emotional DNA—then shares invaluable practices like Truth Maintenance, The Planned Freak-Out, and The Fear-Less Equation to help you sift through years of pretending and perfecting to unearth the strength in who you were all along.
“Behind every person fighting against their Self is really a person who yearns to want their Self,” says Horwitch. “And that is a journey worth going on.” Want Your Self is the blueprint for that journey—a pragmatic and proactive alternative to the toxic positivity that keeps us disconnected from ourselves and each other.

Katie has crafted a really important book with Want Your Self. Self-love and self-talk are among the topics she covers. I loved her examples and personal touches with the book. They paired really well with the facts and research about how important our self-talk and compassion are. I'm suggesting this book to my young nieces along with friends in my self-love coaching group. Thanks to NetGalley for the ARC. Five stars!
Although I overall liked this book, I had a hard time getting into it. I wasn’t interested in the author’s stories about herself and her family; I just wanted to start working on myself. Once I got past the beginning, I found the book very helpful.
This should be a must read for all women from teenage years to senior citizens! Women berate themselves far too much and what would our world look like if that pattern stopped??!! If we wanted our self first before anything else in our life, how would our individual and collective lives shift for better. Tremendously.
W.A.N.T is an acronym for women against negative talk and Author Katie Horwitch is the perfect role model for this way of being. Highly recommend the book.
