Ok, I know a lot of these reviews are sketchy and 'which ones can I trust' but you can trust mine. I'm from Minnesota, grew up in Colorado and Brené Brown has literally changed my life.
I have struggled with depression for so many freaking years, and little to my surprise did I come to find out that it wasn't depression at all but a list of other things that I actually had control of but wasn't aware of. Her research provided a way for me to be able to understand myself on a level deeper than anyone or any book I've ever read. I read her books every night like scripture because her words literally feed my soul. Sounds like hippy BS but it isn't. It's real. It's here. And you'll never hear about it because of the psychiatric society. I was depressed and bed ridden for two weeks and finally got myself to jump into her book again and literally overnight I was better. My husband was totally surprised and shocked and confused. We'd never seen an answer so quick like that.
This book was the last missing puzzle piece and everything has finally fit together. Please for the sake of your own mental health, read her books.
