Give Yourself A Break

Give Yourself A Break – Book Review

When you were growing up, you were probably taught that you should treat others the way that you would like to be treated.

But, think about how you interact with the people in your life. Do you actually treat yourself as well as you treat the people around you?

  • Are you kinder to others than you are to yourself?
  • Do you find it easier to forgive others for their mistakes than for your own?
  • Do you hear your inner voice saying things to yourself that you would never say to someone else?

If you find yourself answering yes to any of these questions, I encourage you to add Give Yourself A Break – Turning Your Inner Critic Into A Compassionate Friend by Kim Fredrickson to your reading list!

In Give Yourself A Break, licensed marriage and family therapist and certified Christian life coach Kim Fredrickson examines why we have such a hard time being compassionate with ourselves. She also shows why self-compassion is an essential component to a healthy and emotionally balanced life!

Kim provides us with plenty of practical tools to help us take better care of ourselves, shows how self-compassion is foundational to all of our relationships, and points to God as our role model for compassion and tenderness.

She also examines some of the life experiences that make us vulnerable to neglecting our needs and teaches us how to create a positive self-care plan that can help us transform our lives.

Give Yourself A Break is a great Christian self-help book for those who are looking for a biblically-based resource to help them improve their lives.

I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars.
