Yes, I thought it was very helpful. Even though I didn't do all of the exercises, simply hearing this new perspective was immensely helpful for me to be less self-critical. I believe that my overall sense of self has improved and I have less anxious episodes caused by self-judgement and doubt.

This book really opened me up to accepting myself the way I am instead of feeling like I am inferior to others because I get overwhelmed so easily.
