Publisher's Summary

No-punches-pulled advice to women who want to stop undermining their own happiness once and for all

How to Stop Feeling Like Sh*t is a straight-shooting approach to self-improvement for women, one that offers no-crap truth-telling about the most common self-destructive behaviors women tend to engage in. From listening to the imposter complex and bitchy inner critic to catastrophizing and people-pleasing, Andrea Owen - a nationally sought-after life coach - crystallizes what's behind these invisible, undermining habits. With each chapter, she kicks women's gears out of autopilot and empowers them to create happier, more fulfilling lives. Powerfully on-the-mark, the chapters are short and digestible, nicely bypassing weighty examinations in favor of punch-points of awareness.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Life Changer

Andrea Owen has taken me on an emotional roller coaster through some of the life experiences I've swept under the rug and chose to ignore for decades. I bought the physical copy as well as the #Audible1 version of this book, and it has seriously changed the game for me. I feel like we've lived similar stories and her PDF that accompanies the book with all the tough questions to ask yourself, and work to do, is where the magic happens. She has empowered me to take the actions necessary to literally change my life for the better in countless ways. Great listen. Great read. Life changer!!! Thank you!!! Thank you!!! Thank you!!!

Life Changer

Made me think, so much about the things I do to make myself miserable, and made me realize that not only can I stop feeling like shit, I can actually feel good, with very little effort. Now that I am aware, I can put in the work, and I have already noticed a huge difference in my thinking.

There are some pearls

Where was this book 20 years ago? I’m no longer the right audience for it I think. I’m not even sure why I chose this book, other than out of curiosity. I don’t feel like shit (most of the time) and I’ve quite a bit of life experience that has taught me so much already. I think this would be best suited for folks in their 20s or 30s. By the time we’re approaching 50 we sure have a lot of sh&t figured out !

This book is incredible

This book is incredible and I want to be best friends with the author. She writes from experience and she has experiences many hard things in her life, and I really took to the words she spoke and the challenges she gave and I loved the book. I even cried at the end when it was over! I will definitely keep this in my library forever and listen to it again.

This book Changed my life!

This book has helped me SO much to realize what i was doing to myself and why i was doing it. Thank you thank you thank you for writing it. It has helped me set boundaries with people, ask for what i want in a relationship, and finally able to have hard conversations! It's helped me learn SO much about myself. I didn't realize my habits were self sabotaging and started as a child. It's truly helped me live happier and have a happier marriage! Thank you!!

Thoroughly Enjoyed This Book

I love personal development books that aren't afraid to sprinkle in some curse words. I, personally, find that it helps to digest the information a little easier.

I found this book as a wonderful refresher for both positive strategies and habits that may hinder personal development. I would recommend.

A review on general behavioral patterns

This book reviews a bunch of general behavioral patterns that hold people back in their relationships and personal wellness. The behavioral patterns mentioned range from being a people pleaser to someone who always blames others. The book also mentions exercises in self- awareness and ways to fix unhealthy problems. The author is understanding, seeks ways we connect to others, and emphasizes the importance of forgiveness and realizing we are only human. I think this is a good general self-help book for starters because it talks about a variety of unhealthy behavioral patterns instead of specializing in one topic like what some other books do. This is good for beginning to explore the issues holding you back from experiencing your best feeling of wellness if you don't already know yourself.

Life Changing

This book is exactly what I needed at this point in my life. I love how Andrea brings to light the REAL LIFE struggles us women face on a daily basis and let’s us know we’re not alone. Her straight forward language is perfect for driving her message home in a way that makes an impact and forces your head out of the sand. I recommend this book to any woman who feels stuck in a rut or has totally lost sight of herself. Read this book for YOU!!!

Forgettable

I have ready quite a few self help books. This didn’t really bring anything new to the table for me. Some of the advice didn’t really apply to my life at all, other advice was pretty generic. I can’t remember anything that stood out about this book at all.

A few useful mantras

If you read a lot of self improvement books this will reinforce recurring themes
less evidence informed than other similar books

Bat Sh*t Cray No More!

Love, love, love this book! I felt like Andrea was having a private one on one coaching session with me as she hit on absolutely every emotion I️ have been feeling. Every word she spoke was relevant in this crazy world we are trying our best to live in. This is definitely a book I️ will listen to over and over again, and continue to grow from each listen! Thank you for writing this book, Andrea! #myveryownlifecoach

A relatively good book...but lacked in originality

I loved a lot of moments in the book but I felt that overall she wasn't as authentic as I felt she could have been. I know she strived to be real and honest in the book and I gained a lot of good insights, but not many of them felt like the authors own personal revalations--so to speak. I think the book is a good reminder of some basic values in staying true to one's self and building from scratch.
I definitely think it's a good recommendation, and I think this author is simply going to get better with time.
I consider this book to be a good reminder for basic living and thinking techniques.
-Thank You

It finally clicked!

Highly recommend! Have listened to so many self help and empowerment books but this one hit a home run. I really enjoyed to straight talk and practical advice given for living your best life. My biggest takeaway? You don’t need anyone’s permission to make decisions about your life.

Didn’t resonate with me...

I found I couldn’t relate to the style and much of the content. I debated bailing on it but stuck with it and was happy when I reached the end. There were a couple enlightening things for me but I just didn’t connect with most of it. I find myself wondering what attracted me to buying this one in the first place.

So many new realizations!

What did you love best about How to Stop Feeling Like Sh*t?

Yes! It's making me realize a lot of things I do that keep me stuck - numb'ing out, and how to have more empathy, which is important for having better relationships and friendships!

Any additional comments?

Our minds, stories we tell ourselves, how we were raised, and societal stuff can keep us stuck, or even from realizing what is possible for our lives. Andrea helps you "see" what is going on so you can begin to make changes that will help you kick some booty in life, and in an easy to understand way!

Génial

J’ai adoré ce livre. Le ton est simple et bienveillant. Je l’ai même commandé en version papier pour pouvoir y écrire des notes et surligner les meilleurs passages.
Une grande aide pour les moments difficiles qui contient d s conseils applicables et plein de bon sens. Un bon moyen pour avancer et un très bon moment de lecture.
