If We’re Being Honest Silencing The Lies We Tell Ourselves To Live A Life We Love by Jennifer Thompson

 If We’re Being Honest Silencing The Lies We Tell Ourselves To Live A Life We Love by Jennifer Thompson from Urano Publishing. If We Are Being Honest is not just a book; it's a guiding beacon that empowers women to break free from the suffocating grip of perfectionism and embrace their true selves.

Do you ever find yourself feeling alone? As if somehow, you're the only person in the world who can't seem to get their life together? Women everywhere struggle with feeling as though we're failing. We shapeshift in and out of our roles as mother, wife, daughter, employee, friend, and volunteer in a desperate attempt to be all and give all... but at what cost?
Jennifer Thompson was doing well at fitting the bill of being a working mom and wife, but on the inside, she was screaming. She wrestled with comparison and focused on her inconsistencies and gaps, instead of her ability to continually show up. 

She set expectations no one could uphold, only to beat herself up when she couldn't meet them. With yesterday's mascara streaming down her face from a good shower cry, she hit a pivotal crossroad. She could continue down a path of chasing perfection at every turn or she could learn to let go. She could choose to love herself today.
She now brings her, "been there done that" stories of her own failures and how accepting herself flaws and all has changed her life...and how it can change yours, too. If We Are Being Honest challenges women everywhere to walk into freedom and peace by rejecting the idea that perfection exists, and instead, honoring and owning who we are at our core to find joy on the other side.

Are you ready to get honest?


My Opinion: I wanted to read this book as I am having trouble with self-esteem and breaking old patterns that are holding me stuck and when this book arrived I was afraid it was going to be too honest for me to handle but I started reading it anyways and I am glad I did as it gave me insight I needed, reminded me I am flawed, I was inspired and got motivated to do what I need to in my life. I know I will read this many times.
