You Are a Badass by Jen Sincero
I started seeing a therapist last week. My first time. I’ve been dealing with some anxiety. Anyway – she recommended this book, said she recommends it to most of her clients.
And I’ve got to say, it is awful.
I think Sincero means well, and has had success in her own life and wants to share her trail to success with others. She attempts to do that by saying the real reason we don’t have what we want in life is that we don’t love ourselves enough – and that not loving oursleves is the cause of things like not having a boyfriend, being broke, and the reason you’re depressed.
I found it poorly thought out, problematic and truly bad advice.
I’m all for loving yourself and finding passion and drive to do the things you want to do. But it doesn’t solve everything.
Read if: You really need a kick in the ass and don’t want to think too hard.
