#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • “Packed with incredible insight about what it means to be a woman today.”—Reese Witherspoon (Reese’s Book Club x Hello Sunshine Book Pick)
In her most revealing and powerful memory to date, the best-selling activist, speaker, author, and “patron saint of female empowerment” (People) explores the joy and peace we discover when we stop striving to meet the expectations of others and we begin to trust the deep voice. among us.
Indomitable will liberate women emotionally, spiritually, and physically. It is phenomenal. ”- Elizabeth Gilbert, author of City of Girls and Eat Pray Love
This is how you find yourself.
There is a yearning voice within every woman. We strive powerfully to be good – good partners, daughters, mothers, employees, and friends. We hope that all this effort makes us feel alive. Instead, it leaves us feeling tired, stuck, overwhelmed, and disappointed. We look at our lives and ask ourselves: wasn’t everything supposed to be more beautiful than this? We quickly silence that question, telling ourselves to be grateful, hiding our discontent, even from ourselves.
For many years, Glennon Doyle denied his own discontent. Then, while speaking at a conference, he looked at a woman across the room and fell in love instantly. Three words flooded his mind: There She Is. At first, Glennon assumed that these words came to him from above. But she soon realized that they had come to her from within. It was his own voice, the one he had buried under decades of numbing addictions, cultural conditioning, and institutional loyalties. This was the voice of the girl she had been before the world told her who she was. Glennon decided to stop abandoning herself and abandon the world’s expectations of her. She stopped being good in order to be free. She stopped pleasing and started living.
Touching and thunderous, forceful, and tender, Untamed is both an intimate memory and a stimulating wake-up call. It is the story of how a woman learned that a responsible mother is not the one who slowly dies for her children, but the one who shows them how to live fully. It is the story of navigating divorce, forming a new mixed family, and discovering that the breakup or integrity of a family does not depend on its structure but on the ability of each member to be brought to the table. And it’s the story of how each of us can begin to trust ourselves enough to set limits, make peace with our bodies, honor our anger and heartbreak, and unleash our truest and wildest instincts to become women who finally they can look at ourselves. and say: there she is.
Indomitable shows us how to be brave. As Glennon insists: the braver we are, the luckier we are.
