Thank you Brené! I am definitely not alone in this world! So many of the things I've learned from this book I will put into practice, but the most important one is that I'm enough!
Overall, there are a couple of good nuggets, but they are not that earth shattering.
If you would like to hear a middle aged soccer Mom rant about her kids, husband, past alcoholism and nervous breakdown, then by all means, buy this book.
I was really disappointed, but you may love it.
I loved this book and recommend everyone read it. This book will help facilitate a complete change in how I view myself and the quality of my relationships.
I really missed having the author narrate this. Her voice is so distinctive and her passion so obvious. This narrator is not terrible but definitely suffered by comparison. No complaints about the content as I found a wealth of useful information.
If this book title was by an author whose voice was not a part of her appeal, the reader would have been acceptable. The reader, not even Southern, was a huge disappointment. I could not continue listening as the emphasis and passion were missing. This audio version was a waste of money and a huge disappointment.
This year will go down in my personal history as my mid-life crisis. I've been trying to figure out who I am and what can possibly help me to feel happy and alive again. These words spoke to my soul. I need, NEED, mindfulness. I need to feel worthy and live the life that Brown describes who she became after making these discoveries and changing her own life based on her research. I downloaded the audio book a week ago and have already listened to it twice. Yesterday I purchased the printed book so I could reference things easier. My husband is interested in listening to it now as well, since I have been sharing the things I have been learning with him. Thank you for a book so densely filled with helpful content.
The real raw insides of the book.
Challenging anxiety and invitation to self care and balance.
This is a wonderful book - very inspiring and enlightening. My only complaint is the narrator was too chipper. She sounded like she was reading for a bunch of 10 year olds. It just got irritating at times.
