According to Goodreads, Soulful and uproarious, forceful and tender, Untamed is both an intimate memoir and a galvanizing wake-up call. It is the story of how one woman learned that a responsible mother is not one who slowly dies for her children, but one who shows them how to fully live.
It is the story of navigating divorce, forming a new blended family, and discovering that the brokenness or wholeness of a family depends not on its structure but on each member’s ability to bring her full self to the table. And it is the story of how each of us can begin to trust ourselves enough to set boundaries, make peace with our bodies, honor our anger and heartbreak, and unleash our truest, wildest instincts so that we become women who can finally look at ourselves and say: There She Is.
Untamed by Glennon Doyle is a story of how she learned to live and be her true self. She talks about how women put everyone else first in their lives and how to break those chains. Here are some quotes that will make you fall in love with the book.
When a woman finally learns that pleasing the world is impossible, she becomes free to learn how to please herself.
“When women lose themselves, the world loses its way. We do not need more selfless women. What we need right now is more women who have detoxed themselves so completely from the world’s expectations that they are full of nothing but themselves. What we need are women who are full of themselves. A woman who is full of herself knows and trusts herself enough to say and do what must be done. She lets the rest burn.”
Being human is not hard because you’re doing it wrong, it’s hard because you’re doing it right.
Who were you before the world told you who you are?
