Girl, Wash Your Face: Stop Believing the Lies About Who You Are So You Can Become Who You Were Meant
In Girl, Wash Your Face, Rachel Hollis covers 20 lies that she used to believe about herself and how she has worked to overcome them.
These include thoughts such as "I'll Start Tomorrow", "I'm Bad at Sex", "I Need a Drink", and "I Should be Further Along By Now."
This self help book is meant to encourage you to feel strength in creating lasting positive change in your own life.
I personally enjoyed this book and felt it inspired me. I enjoy hearing how others have faced hardships and have been able to learn, grow and persevere. I also appreciate the message that your happiness is up to YOU and that you should work hard for the things you want in life.
As Rachel Hollis is a Christian, there is Bible references and mentions of her faith and Christianity sprinkled throughout this book. I myself am not a Christian but still enjoyed it (some reviewers felt that was too much for them)
I read a lot of good and bad reviews on this book. The bad reviews ranged from readers not liking her stance or practice as a Christian to her being a privileged, rich, white woman with no real problems, to people hating on her success.....(some of it sounding like people making excuses for themselves, some of it maybe valid).
I found at times it was a little preachy (not so much in the Biblical sense, more so in the long pep talks) BUT overall I found this book picked me up, fired me up and made me feel really good.
I listened to this book through my Audible app (I did not read it!). So I am sure that I missed some things here and there. But in the end I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would recommend reading it if you want some inspiration to make some change or chase some goals in your life.
