'Beautiful, meditative, touching and hopeful' Arianna Huffington
Have you ever told yourself that you don't belong, or that you aren't worthy or enough, exactly as you are? It's time to rewrite your story.
In Already Enough, therapist Lisa Olivera explores how our 'stories' affect us – the stories we tell ourselves about the person we are because of the things that have happened to us or the way people have treated us – often a lot more than we realise. Drawing on her own extraordinary experience as an adopted child, abandoned by her mother in California woods just hours after birth, she combines memoir with therapeutic exercises to help us reframe the stories we tell ourselves about ourselves.
For young people finding their way in life, professionals who doubt their own abilities and parents who struggle to love themselves as much as their families, Already Enough is a manual to healing and self-love. Urging us to believe that we are already enough, just as we are, this is a tender, hopeful and inspiring reminder that we are the authors of our own stories, deserving of a more nourishing life.
