You are Enough: Embrace your Flaws and Be Happy Being You

Author: Cheryl Rickman  

Publisher: Summersdale, 2021

 

Reviewed by Clare Lieanna Jupili.

The burden of expectation can be relentless. It’s this pressure that first sparks our fear of failure, a flame fanned by the expectations of others over time, which can lead us to value ourselves based on our academic achievement. So what can we do about it? After all, we are each so much more than our achievements, our belongings and our looks. The truth, whether you believe it we are all enough. 

You are Enough is a book about freeing ourselves from the “shackles of should” which come from multiple sources in society. It’s a guide to cultivating an attitude of “enoughness”, providing practical ways to turn down the volume on comparison, criticism and expectation and turn up the volume on acceptance, balance and compassion. A good self-help book for those who are facing self-oriented perfection and often seeking for external validation.
