Girl, Wash Your Face: Stop Believing the Lies about Who You Are so You Can Become Who You Were Meant to Be by Rachel Hollis is a book that exposes the 20 lies and misconceptions readers, especially women, tell themselves. The founder of TheChicSite.com and CEO of her own media company examines the foundations of the psychology of failure in this book and explains, with insight and humor, how we have become slaves to lies we have been repeatedly told, lies we have learned to repeat to ourselves and lies that have slowly become part of our belief system.
In the opening chapter of this enticing and entertaining book, the author states that: “Life isn’t supposed to overwhelm you at all times. Life isn’t meant to be merely survived —it’s meant to be lived.” This look explains why we are so disconnected from ourselves, from reality, always chasing illusions fed to us by our culture, the media, new trends, and society. In this book, the author offers powerful lessons, some that readers tend to deny when they hit home: no one else or nothing else will make you happy. This book is designed to offer readers tools to take control of their destiny, to become creators of their life. Rachel Hollis shares her waking up stories with readers and in so doing wakes them up — at times brutally!
This author gives back to readers the gift they have lost: the gift of freedom, the gift to live freely and passionately, the gift to embrace their humanity and vulnerability without shame. Girl, Wash Your Face: Stop Believing the Lies About Who You Are so You Can Become Who You Were Meant to Be is bold, insightful, and filled with anecdotes from the author’s life that are as revealing as they are teaching. One of those books that turn lives around and prompt readers on refreshingly new paths.
