Daphne Rose Kingma has written a beautiful book on being the love of your own life and to stop seeking it outside. The hardest path to love is that when it is yourself. Ironic when most people seek to be loved by another without ever trying to love themselves. Many relationships are about feeling valuable because someone else, also imperfect, loves you but without them you are nothing. Consider investing all your energy in an act of power and love ... and loving yourself like nothing else.

This was an excellent book. Beautifully written. The only passage that bothered me was when she mentioned a Korean practice called Dahn Hak. If you do a search for it, you'll find that it's manipulative, money-based, cult-ish, etc. It's too bad because the majority of the teachings are beautiful, like honoring your body "I love you, my beautiful face." etc. I do highly recommend this book. It'll teach you how to love yourself.

Of the many Daphne Kingma books I have read over the years, this is my favorite. Why? Because in this little volume readers get a real, "up close and personal" look at a much admired author who candidly shares just how much she has struggled with loving herself too. Daphne scores big with this one, reminding us that if we really do want "big love" in our lives, we absolutely have to love ourselves first. Then she expertly sets out to show us how. The path she lays out for us is tried and true. Her advice works--if we are willing to do the work of self--not always easy, but ultimately rewarding.

I especially enjoyed the last chapter in the book, "Living with Self-Compassion," and reading about the author's remarkable journey hiking through Bhutan in the Himalayas. It is an amazing quest, one, which Daphne reminds us is symbolic of the inner journey we must all take if we are to arrive at a place of compassion for ourselves and, ultimately, others.

Daphne Rose Kingma turns her attention to the importance of self love as it relates to our personal success with others. "Loving Yourself" leads us to examine the many ways we sabotage our own goodness and guides us in the direction of wholeness.

Many woman do not feel validated to express what they need in life and tend to be unhappy. This is a great, easy read, to learn why you may have developed the view that their need do not matter and have a lot of negative thoughts about themselves. This gives easy tools to become more loving to yourself and help you speak up in life.

I have just begun this book. It is a small yet powerful book. After reading the first step it took some inner searching to finally begin the journey and putting my theme into words. I have noticed a change already in my self talk and the hamster wheel that I just couldn't seem to stop.. I would recommend this book to anyone searching for inner peace through loving yourself first and foremost. I am a survivor of a narcissistic psychopathic relationship and the devastation to your self trust and self esteem is tremendous. This book has helped me begin the journey back to me and loving the person I am.

I find this book REALLY good and provide me with many insights. Some of the topics covered I didn't even realize is part of self-love, such as speaking out and acting out. It was an easy read, and the examples are very helpful. It is insightful, really makes you stop and think about yourself, and always look within when there's an issue. Would definitely recommend to my friends!
