Er staan hele nuttige tips in dit boek. Ik heb veel over mezelf geleerd en ook hoe ik anders naar bepaalde dingen kan kijken. Ik heb braaf alle oefeningen uitgevoerd (want, 'Braaf meisje'), maar soms was het gewoon wat ongemakkelijk. Het is gek om je innerlijke kreng een naam te geven en ertegen te praten, dat is niet zo mijn ding, denk ik. Verder heb ik een hekel aan het woord 'compassie', en dat zat hier ook in. Is meer een dingetje waar ik last van heb dan dat het negatief is

This book is a bit corny, sounds like it was made for a girly magazine, but actually deals with important psychological issues in a fun way.

3.5 for the book, 4.5 for the concepts! I saw Amy speak last month in San Francisco; it was an incredibly moving, enlightening workshop for us all. The book has a few too many trite catch phrases and code names for things, but I can see how a certain demographic would buy into that. The ideas at the core are what really interested me, and I got more out of the highlights at the session than I did from the full book. That said, if you're a woman who finds she's stressed, anxious, or fearful, is c ...more

Nie neguję tej książki, zdaję sobie sprawę, że jest mnóstwo osób, którym pomogła i co najmniej równie wielu kobietom pomoże w przyszłości. Niestety mi książka nie przypadła do gustu, nudziłam się w trakcie jej czytania, nie potrafiłam się należycie skupić na treści, przez to trudno oczekiwać, żeby przyniosła ona jakikolwiek pozytywny efekty...

A lot of psycho bubble, but it's nice to remind yourself from time to time to be nicer and more forgiving toward yourself.

Nie wiem, czego oczekiwałam po „Rozpraw się ze swoją wewnętrzną jędzą” Amy Ahlers i Christine Arylo. Że po przeczytaniu tej książki patrząc na siebie w lustrze stanę się mniej krytyczna? Że uspokoję złośliwe podszepty, które często stają się przyczyną dla niekontrolowanych wybuchów irytacji? Że otrzymam przepis na bycie idealną, spokojną i piękną? Nie wiem. Wiem, jednak, co dostałam – poradnik, który początkowo wydawał mi się kluczem do sukcesu, a ostatecznie zapisał w mo

In "Inner Mean Girl" the authors discuss several factors that inhibit one from truly loving themselves and finding self-acceptance. The book details 7 steps / 13 personas that invade our thoughts. Nothing really surprising here, as you'll recognize self-defeating behaviors quickly. The authors goal is to help women find a way out of their "inner critic" and enhance "inner wisdom". Through a series of detailed examples and quizzes, the authors guide individuals to recognizing the self-defeating b ...more

Shelves: 2015, non-fiction
I really liked this book's message, and I thought the authors developed clever ways to address these issues. I found the middle section to be a bit overly spiritual, but there are great messages about self-compassion and self-acceptance that would be ideal for my high school readers.

Overall it was a great read. Which girl doesn't experience the little inner bully that brings her down? It for sure helped me see things I didn't realise before. Also, it's written in a very light way making it not only a good self-help book, but also a relaxing read.

Erg Amerikaans in taalgebruik en voorbeelden, te hyper voor mijn smaak.

Basically just cognitive behavioral therapy for low self-esteem, padded out with anecdotes and a sales pitch for their workshops.

Very good book! Very informative and helpful when it comes to your inner mean girl. Good quizzes to take to better learn about yourself and your inner mean girl. A must read!

I loved this book! It helped me identify my "inner mean girl", and equipped me with the tools needed to stop and handle her "attacks". A great way to learn self-love.
