The Gifts of Imperfection: Let Go of Who You Think You're Supposed to Be and Embrace Who You Are

by Brené Brown Author

In this New York Times bestseller, author Brené Brown sets out to help you come to terms with who you really are, rather than punish yourself for who you aren't. Fortifying her arguments with research and narrative storytelling, Brown tells us that we should relinquish the idea that we are living an 'imperfect' life and instead seek to live authentically, or as we actually are. Through practicing self-compassion and embracing imperfection, we can set a healthier standard for ourselves and let go of toxic thoughts about what we are doing wrong. A must read for anyone struggling with perfectionism, and really an excellent read for just about anyone.
