Debbie Ford explains that the dark side of our personality should not be hidden. By denying our dark side, we reject these aspects of our true natures rather than giving ourselves the freedom to live authentically. Here she shows that it is possible to acknowledge and accept our so-called weaknesses, proving that these qualities may be important, hidden strengths. For example, perhaps some "selfishness" can save us from exhaustion and resentment.
Full of illuminating stories and practical exercises, Debbie Ford shows us how to reconcile our darker impulses and find the gifts they offer. Your life will be transformed when you unconceal, own, and embrace your shadow.

her authentic life
You can feel Debbie's authenticity as she tells her story. I could tell how important she feels her message is and how much she wants to help others with it.
I now have such a great understanding of why certain characteristics in other people bothered me so much. It never occurred to me that they were the qualities in myself I did not like or want to deal with. The level of acceptance of myself first then of others has changed dramatically which in turn has changed my life.
Perfect book for people who are in a place to handle true self-reflection and really want a major change in themselves.
It takes courage to look into our shadows; there is great reward for those who do. Debbie's is thoughtful and gentle in guiding readers through the process. Thank you, Debbie, for this wonderful work!
Tell us about yourself!
YES for sure. She asks some really really good questions, that gets you thinking about yourself!
All of it really, many SHOCK questions.
What we often DON'T LIKE in someone else is often a mirror of something we don't like about ourself!
I have been passing over this book for a few months, thinking this is not for me!
But then l stopped and asked myself. Why does this book keep coming up???
