I recently deleted all my social media for a while because I’m trying to make all the changes necessary for a healthier lifestyle, no matter how small! So I made a list of books that I could read while I bored at work now that I don’t have social, This was the first one I chose! I absolutely loved everything about it!!!!
This book was everything that I needed and when I needed to hear it. Hands down an amazing read!
Love how raw and honest Rachel Hollis is and this book was an amazing read!
I was all into the first part of this book but when I got to the part about her relationship I lost all respect. When you have such a HUGE platform like this and you literally write about an abusive relationship for an entire chapter, talk about how you’ll warn your kids to never be in a relationship like this, then say, “people change, we got back together and have babies etc. but not all situations are like this so don’t stay in your situation if you’re in one..” thats disgusting. Not only are you encouraging (yes unknowingly, believe me the slightest hope like that makes your brain go crazy) unhealthy relationships but you are giving people false hope even if you mildly addressed that not all people change. You are in a narcissistic adult-adult abusive relationship and him showing up at your door was not because he loves you it was because he was trying to trap you for life and it looks like it worked. I was seriously like, “GIRL YAS, CUT THE CHAIN, YAS” and then you married the guy. All respect gone. Couldn’t even finish the book because at the point I was so disappointed and disgusted that the rest was probably all lies. You said you’re honest, heres some honesty for you.
Really changed my life!
This was the first book I fully finished in a long time. Her writing is amazing and I absolutely fell in love with the book that I literally could not stop reading it! It took me a week to finish because I could not get my hands off of it! 😂 I 100% recommend and can’t wait to pass the book onto someone else who can fall in love with it just like I did! SO GOOD. 🤗
