Biography & Autobiography. Self-Improvement. Nonfiction. HTML:#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER ? OVER TWO MILLION COPIES SOLD! ??Packed with incredible insight about what it means to be a woman today.???Reese Witherspoon (Reese??s Book Club Pick)
In her most revealing and powerful memoir yet, the activist, speaker, bestselling author, and ??patron saint of female empowerment? (People) explores the joy and peace we discover when we stop striving to meet others?? expectations and start trusting the voice deep within us.
NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY O: The Oprah Magazine ? The Washington Post ? Cosmopolitan ? Marie Claire ? Bloomberg ? Parade ? ??Untamed will liberate women??emotionally, spiritually, and physically. It is phenomenal.???Elizabeth Gilbert, author of City of Girls and Eat Pray Love

This is how you find yourself.

There is a voice of longing inside each woman. We strive so mightily to be good: good partners, daughters, mothers, employees, and friends. We hope all this striving will make us feel alive. Instead, it leaves us feeling weary, stuck, overwhelmed, and underwhelmed. We look at our lives and wonder: Wasn??t it all supposed to be more beautiful than this? We quickly silence that question, telling ourselves to be grateful, hiding our discontent??even from ourselves.
For many years, Glennon Doyle denied her own discontent. Then, while speaking at a conference, she looked at a woman across the room and fell instantly in love. Three words flooded her mind: There She Is. At first, Glennon assumed these words came to her from on high. But she soon realized they had come to her from within. This was her own voice??the one she had buried beneath decades of numbing addictions, cultural conditioning, and institutional allegiances. This was the voice of the girl she had been before the world told her who to be. Glennon decided to quit abandoning herself and to instead abandon the world??s expectations of her. She quit being good so she could be free. She quit pleasing and started living.
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.

I haven't read any of Doyle's other books, nor do I know much about her. I picked this up at random at the thrift store.

Be who you are. Let others be who they are. We'll all be happier for it.

That's this book in a nutshell. And I loved it. A few of the chapters are a bit redundant, it's a little self-focused (although it is a memoir, so there's that), which is why it loses a half star for me.

In this world, in this country, in this time where half the people feel the need to control the other half, where old white men don't want to trust women to make decisions about their own bodies, where many folks want to dictate how others express their sexuality, where a small minority want to force their beliefs about how to live life, more people need to read this book.

A friend gifted me this audiobook a long while ago, and I put it off for a variety of reasons (procrastination, lack of motivation, lazy excuses) until I began working toward a reading goal at the beginning of 2022. Actually, I ordered the hardcover because I remembered it had been recommended to me, forgetting altogether that I owned the audiobook. Sigh.

While a few of Glennon’s ideas and attitudes left me rolling my eyes, overall this was a truly helpful book with lots of lessons universal enough to be applied to anyone’s life and circumstances. If you’re considering reading this, there’s probably a reason for that, so you should. Whether it will prompt you to make major life changes or just to make small, bolder choices amid the mundane, you’re almost guaranteed to find something useful here. ( )

What an insufferable, navel-gazing individual. Bottom line, marry a famous person with her own baggage and then share your issues with the world. Ugh. ( )

I hadn’t heard of the author before reading her book. Parts of the “me me me” writing were tedious but it’s her story to tell. ( )

Trying to decide between 3 and 4. I started excited and then couldn’t wait to finish. Some essays are full of ink. Many I left clean. This is Glennon’s story. It is powerful and she invites others to find the power in her story and our own.

Most of the essays are conversations between her and others-family members, friends, fans. And when she recalls those conversations she always speaks the wisest most eloquent words. She is always the wisdom in the room (except for Elizabeth Gilbert) and I found that very tiring. ( )
