Type A feeling overwhelmed & exhausted? Read this book!
Reviewed in the United States on January 31, 2017
I am a type A, firstborn, do-it-all, perfectionistic mom of 4 who has been striving to prove myself my whole life. Actually, I should say I USED to be that – until about 5 years ago when I started having some health struggles in my life and could no longer do it all, much less do any it even remotely perfectly. I say this so you know that I know EXACTLY what it’s like to be on both sides of the coin. So hear me when I say…if you are feeling frazzled from striving so hard, from feeling like you need to prove your worth to others, from feeling like you’re sinking or drowning beneath the weight you carry…YOU NEED TO READ THIS BOOK. The author’s style of writing is transparent enough you feel she is a friend who loves you enough to tell you like it is. She shares her own struggles and fears. She understands. I felt like she’d camped out in my head the last 5 years and then written a book about what all was going on in there.
I especially enjoyed the sections she would write from the perspective of someone in the Bible, ex: the bride at the wedding in John 2, the Samaritan woman at the well in John 4. Also, there are questions at the end of each chapter to help you reflect and process what she talked about and how it relates to your own life and struggles.
If you think you’re too busy to read this book, my guess is you probably REALLY need to read this book. There’s more to life than a to-do list, friend!
I was given an advanced reader copy in exchange for my honest opinion.
