Rachel Hollis has seen it too often: women not living into their full potential. They feel a tugging on their hearts for something more, but they’re afraid of embarrassment, of falling short of perfection, of not being enough. In Girl, Stop Apologizing, number-one New York Times best-selling author and founder of a multimillion-dollar media company, Rachel Hollis sounds a wake-up call. She knows that many women have been taught to define themselves in light of other people - whether as wife, mother, daughter, or employee....

EVERY women, especially mom's, needs to read/listen to this book! AMAZING! I will be listening to this over and over.

Being narrated by the author was the best part; you can feel her passion and it's insanely motivating. Even though I'm not a mom, every single thing she talked about I could relate to.

I wish I could rate higher.

Based on seven years of ground-breaking research and hundreds of interviews, I Thought It Was Just Me shines a long-overdue light on an important truth: Our imperfections are what connect us to each other and to our humanity. Our vulnerabilities are not weaknesses; they are powerful reminders to keep our hearts and minds open to the reality that we're all in this together.

I prefer "Gifts of imperfection" but this is still excellent. would be good if you're a parent.

Each day we face a barrage of images and messages from society and the media telling us who, what, and how we should be. We are led to believe that if we could only look perfect and lead perfect lives, we'd no longer feel inadequate. So most of us perform, please, and perfect, all the while thinking, What if I can't keep all of these balls in the air? Why isn't everyone else working harder and living up to my expectations? What will people think if I fail or give up? When can I stop proving myself?

wonderful listen and so relevant to what I was going through. Enjoyed it so much I started it immediately after finishing it. I think everyone can take something away from this book!
