Here is a delightful collection of stories from creator Lori Deschene. She shares 40 unique perspectives and insights on topics related to loving yourself: realizing you’re not broken, accepting your flaws, releasing the need for approval, forgiving yourself, letting go of comparisons, and learning to be authentic.

Featuring stories from Tiny Buddha readers, the book provides an honest look at what it means to overcome critical, self-judging thoughts to create a peaceful, empowered life. This is not a book of one-size-fits-all wisdom from experts in the field of self-love (though it includes some research-based suggestions); it’s a book of powerful, vulnerable reflections and epiphanies from people, just like all of us, who are learning to love themselves, flaws and all.

Each chapter ends with action-oriented suggestions, based on the wisdom in the stories.
