Professional Troublemaker: The Fear Fighter Manual by Luvvie Ajayi Jones (New York, Penguin Life 2021)
Why you should read it: Family of origin matters. The most well-intentioned family member “with your best interests at heart” can insert inside your 30 trillion bodily cells a whole lot of fear and sh#t that is not yours. It is theirs, but now you’re living your life from that place. To understand those familial impressions, reshape your interactions with those imposed fears, find role models from your family tree and discover how to move forward in your life regardless of those fears (‘cause as Luvvie says, you need to learn how to push past the fears!), read Luvvie’s kicks book. And yes, with her wit and wisdom, she will kick your cowering ass.
