Rachel Hollis has seen it too often: women not living into their full potential. They feel a tugging on their hearts for something more, but they’re afraid of embarrassment, of falling short of perfection, of not being enough.
In Girl, Stop Apologizing, #1 New York Times bestselling author and founder of a multimillion-dollar media company, Rachel Hollis sounds a wake-up call. She knows that many women have been taught to define themselves in light of other people—whether as wife, mother, daughter, or employee—instead of learning how to own who they are and what they want. With a challenge to women everywhere to stop talking themselves out of their dreams, Hollis identifies the excuses to let go of, the behaviors to adopt, and the skills to acquire on the path to growth, confidence, and believing in yourself.
I had a hard time with this book. Not because I didn’t believe in her message or because I didn’t find her motivating or inspiring. I struggled because it breaks my heart that this book had to be written in the first place. The book gives women permission and the tools to dream big, chase goals, not define themselves by others opinion and to love themselves. How is this still a thing? How are there women out there that need to be told to grow, have confidence and believe in themselves. I KNOW that is the reality, I KNOW that women define their worth through their value to others but it still made me sad to be reminded of it through the pages of this book. If you are a woman struggling to find your path to feeling enough, someone trying to achieve your more, I highly recommend a copy of this.
