really liked it
Read in September, 2012

My therapist recommended this book to me because I have a hard time taking care of myself, and I also have problems being vulnerable and close to other people. This has affected my romantic relationships (or lack thereof).

The book is an easy read, and even though it was written for adult children of alcoholic parents, I could relate. I need to stop being so hard on myself and trying to be perfect. I also need to learn that it's ok for others to help me. I don't have to do everything on my own. Also, it taught me that it's ok to be a bit selfish at times. I can also do things for myself, and not for everyone else.

At the end of each chapter, there are mini meditations that you can do. Also, a recap of what you just read.
