When faced with disappointment, self-doubt, and failure, we rely on positivity mantras and upbeat Bible verses to relieve our anxiety. But instead of easing our emotional burden, the pressure to love ourselves more actually makes it worse. It's time to admit to ourselves what we already know: we are not smart enough; we are not beautiful enough; we are not tough enough; we are not good enough. And that's okay, because God is. Blending timeless wisdom and biblical truths, Stuckey shows how these sneaky, pervasive myths threaten women and fuel victimhood culture - from social justice warriors to radical feminism and the new wave of socialism.
Who Better to Love You Than You? It’s time to stop feeling like we’re not enough. We’re either too fat or too thin. We're not good enough, pretty enough, popular enough, powerful enough, bold enough, brave enough, interesting enough... The solution? More self-love. Know yourself. Bestselling author and psychotherapist, Daphne Rose Kingma, offers a four-step plan to reclaim and love ourselves. Complete with stories and examples to drown out the inner critic, When You Think You’re Not Enough sets out to remind us that we’re more than enough. Be nice to yourself. If we’re being honest, we don’t take ourselves much into consideration. Acceptance, appreciation, respect, compassion… we reserve these virtues for others. Daphne reminds us that we need these to feel good too. It is only after we foster these in ourselves that we can apply it to a greater purpose. Inside, she’ll encourage you to love who you are, and look at and let go of: • Self-deprecating behaviors and beliefs • Old patterns and pressures • Imaginary ideals and standards If you’re ready to start loving yourself, and enjoyed books like, I Thought It Was Just Me (but it isn't), More Than Enough, or You Are Enough, then you’ll love When You Think You're Not Enough.
There are thousands of reasons for not loving ourselves. Every person has one, or one hundred, it seems. We’re too fat or too thin. We cry too easily or not at all. We’re not good enough, pretty enough, tall enough, powerful enough, brave enough or interesting enough. We convince ourselves that we don’t deserve the lives we desire. In When You Think You’re Not Enough, bestselling author and psychotherapist Daphne Rose Kingma helps readers root out the behaviors and beliefs that have prevented them from loving themselves. She offers a four-step plan for reclaiming yourself: speaking out your heart’s desire, acting out to meet your heart’s desire, clearing out old patterns, and setting out on a new path. Through stories and examples, Kigma offers a profound yet simple process for practicing how to feel good enough, smart enough, and deserving of happiness. When You Think You’re Not Enough is a positive guide to a fuller, happier life; one filled with compassion for yourself and others. Published in 2004 as Loving Yourself, the author has updated the text and written a new introduction for this edition. Kingma’s book The Ten Things to Do When Your Life Falls Apart, published by New World Library, is the Winner of the 2010 Books for A Better Life Award, Best Spiritual Book.

When was the last time you listened to someone, or someone really listened to you? "If you’re like most people, you don’t listen as often or as well as you’d like. There’s no one better qualified than a talented journalist to introduce you to the right mindset and skillset—and this book does it with science and humor." -Adam Grant, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Originals and Give and Take "An essential book for our times." -Lori Gottlieb, New York Times bestselling author of Maybe You Should Talk to Someone At work, we’re taught to lead the conversation. On social media, we shape our personal narratives. At parties, we talk over one another. So do our politicians. We’re not listening. And no one is listening to us. Despite living in a world where technology allows constant digital communication and opportunities to connect, it seems no one is really listening or even knows how. And it’s making us lonelier, more isolated, and less tolerant than ever before. A listener by trade, New York Times contributor Kate Murphy wanted to know how we got here. In this always illuminating and often humorous deep dive, Murphy explains why we’re not listening, what it’s doing to us, and how we can reverse the trend. She makes accessible the psychology, neuroscience, and sociology of listening while also introducing us to some of the best listeners out there (including a CIA agent, focus group moderator, bartender, radio producer, and top furniture salesman). Equal parts cultural observation, scientific exploration, and rousing call to action that's full of practical advice, You're Not Listening is to listening what Susan Cain's Quiet was to introversion. It’s time to stop talking and start listening.
