About the book

4.2/5.0

There is a voice of longing inside every woman. We strive so mightily to be good: good mothers, daughters, partners, employees, citizens, and friends. We believe all this striving will make us feel alive. Instead, it leaves us feeling weary, stuck, overwhelmed, and underwhelmed. We look at our lives, relationships, and world, and wonder: Wasn’t it all supposed to be more beautiful than this? Four years ago, Glennon Doyle, author, activist and humanitarian, wife and mother of three—was speaking at a conference when a woman entered the room. Glennon looked at her and fell instantly in love. Three words flooded her mind: There She Is. At first, Glennon assumed these words came to her from on high. Soon she realized that they came to her from within. Glennon was finally hearing her own voice—the voice that had been silenced by decades of cultural conditioning, numbing addictions, and institutional allegiances. She vowed to never again abandon herself. She decided to build a life of her own—one based on her individual desire, intuition, and imagination. She would reclaim her true, untamed self.

Det er en virkelig klog og rå bog som er et must for alle piger og kvinder. Den handler om hendes livshistorie og det svære valg det er, at blive forelsket i en kvinde og forlade mand og det ‘normale’ liv. Pointen hvordan vi alle slipper af med det hæmmende, tillærte, uægte i tilværelsen og lever mere frit og kontakt med hvem vi er..

April ‘20 “This memoir is so packed with incredible insight about what it means to be a woman today, what did we learn as young girls about how to behave or believe, and why we need to free ourselves from a lot of these ideas that don’t work anymore. (Hot tip: Being ‘selfless’ is not the highest goal a woman can achieve!!)” - Reese Witherspoon
