Courage Is A Hard Bitter Pill
on November 21, 2016
It took me months to get through this book - some of it because I wanted to reflect on the chapters, and some due to the fact that I'm horrible with nonfiction books. This book had some great advice in it, but a lot of it is hard to take when you've spent your entire life as a coward (apparently). Margie Warrell has a good writing voice, and shares some important experiences with the reader.
If you're ready to face the fact that gaining courage takes a LOT of energy and self-reflection (and, ironically, courage), then maybe this book will help you out. Unfortunately, I just felt beat up by the end of it. Unsure of where to begin despite the exercises. Much like willpower, how do you start when you have no basis for it (Answer: step by little tiny agonizing step). Maybe I just need to read it again, but I think I'll give it some time.
