Iyanla is a wise woman and I learned a lot from this book on how your family history impacts you and how to overcome it. I think she is a great woman and a good influence for young girls. I was very disappointed however in her overwhelming mention of her daughter that passed away and how she barely spoke of her other two children. it was hurtful to me and I can imagine them how she kept saying her daughter was her best friend and all that. I can understand her grief as I am a mother myself but to neglect her living children in the book was a surprise.
I love the places I travel and the things I see through books.
I recommend this to anyone needing to mend the fragments of their life. This was profound even for me a life coach and PhD Psychology student. I still had wounds I was licking unaware. Thanks YaYa!
I loved it and highly recommend this book to anyone and everyone who is willing to make peace with themselves and others. This journey will teach you how to understand and deal with the pathologies of our lives.
This is not for the faint of heart. This book is for those who DARE to have the faith and courage for something new.
Iyanla's raw, truthful account of her journey to self.... An amazing book from an amazing soul!
Number 1 Wonderful!!!!!!!
It made me laugh, think and think.
I loved this book, it is a real life, relatable family story of a woman trying to find herself in a huge world with huge responsibilities. Thank you Iyanla for sharing your truth.
I didn't know much about Iyanla and quite frankly hadn't watched any of her shows or read any other books. Then I went home for the holidays and my family was watching her show online. Her knowledge and wisdom spoke to me and I was compelled to buy the book. Her story and her communication of it is utterly breath-taking and heart-wrenching at the same time. Her constant introspection and reflection mirror my own and she's seem to have mastered the science of emotional intelligence-which is what I feel drew me to her when watching the show. A new fan here. :)
