Style/ Plot – This book spoke to my soul! I highlighted almost every single page on my Kindle as Blake was speaking truths that I knew but had forgotten.

The sub-title of this book is “how to overcome fear, insecurity and depression and lobe yourself back to happiness, confidence and peace.”

He gives insight into his own life and his struggle with deep rooted insecurities. He shows how the reader can be true to her/himself and actually love oneself practically and effectively.

Favourite Quote – “We haven’t cultivated a strong enough faith or trust in ourselves, in life, or in the universe to wholeheartedly be ourselves and go after what we want and love. As a result, most of us just settle for less than we’re worthy and capable of, and then we suffer for it. But life doesn’t have to be this way.

Recommendation – This book is a must read for anyone who is on the path of self discovery and learning how to accept/ love themselves.
