"I know you can be underwhelmed and you can be overwhelmed, but can you ever just be whelmed?" 

That's pretty much how I felt reading this book. This may be an unpopular opinion since the idea of self-care and self-help has taken over pretty much everything. Don't get me wrong, I am very deep into that obsession as well which is why I was very interested in reading this book! 

The obvious thing I liked about the book was the idea of all the lies we tell ourselves. That is 100% true for me. I tell myself lies all the time about how I can do better, I am not enough, I was a shitty step-parent, I suck at blogging, etc. I wouldn't say these horrible things to a complete stranger so why would I say those things to myself? I also liked the fact that she loves Jesus. That was a nice addition to the book. But I felt like the entire time I was waiting for something ground breaking I would take away from the book, and I just never got there. 

Like I said, I didn't love it, I didn't hate it. Would I recommend to a friend to read, sure! 

Have you read the book?! What are your thoughts?
