An extremely important book, and written brilliantly, with an integrity so rare to be seen. I promise you if you read this book AND DO THE EXERCISES, you are not going to regret it.
Years of defences, years of pain, frustration, anxiety, depression, the unspoken everyday issues we have with dealing with others and being ourselves, these are the sorts of things this book addresses. Then, beyond that, it is about discovering what we can make of our lives we can stop living out of fear, when we can stop making avoiding pain our priority, and when we can start living with joy and confidence as our motor.
Find out what is within; who you really are deep down. Find out what you can make of your life if you can give yourself a proper go at it. Find the will to fight for your happiness, the kind of will that every child comes into this world with but slowly loses with all the human irrationality they are inevitably exposed to. Find out, if you’re prepared to put the work in, and to learn and grow and change and face the sometimes terrifying facts of life, what real self-esteem is, and what it can do for your life.
