The author of Life’s Messy Live Happy uses her own life experiences to show how reframing our self-talk will make us healthier and happier.
The book reads more like a memoir with some common pop psychology thrown in than a true step-by-step self-help guide. The author has gone through some stuff. I get it. Hasn’t everyone?
I’m not sure if blaming everything bad on someone else, as the author does, is necessarily the heathiest perspective. What if something you are doing is to blame? Wouldn’t it be better to recognize it and correct it than continuing to face pain again and again?
Overall, Life’s Messy Live Happy didn’t seem as well organized or useful as other self-help books I’ve read. 2 stars.
Thanks to St. Martin’s Press and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
