“You, and only you, are ultimately responsible for who you become and how happy you are.”–Rachel Hollis
Hollis’s memoir is honest and vulnerable. Memoirs are fascinating because in thousands of words a reader is able to witness life through another’s perspective. Ultimately, I feel like Hollis is my new BFF. I get her. We’re different, have varied experiences, but we have come to similar conclusions and I love her.
I’m Christian and have been raised with patriarchal views of life and myself, so has Hollis. She struggles with her self-worth, sex, and anxiety, so do I. We both have grieved the silence of women and been awed by their collective strength. She wants women to succeed. So do I.
