Go to permalink From its title, The Gifts of Imperfection sounds like a book for perfectionists. And it is, but also so much more. The titular gifts are courage, compassion, and connection. Advertisement Who This Book Is For The Gifts of Imperfection is for you if you are any of the following: anxious, a perfectionist, worried about what other people think of you, overstressed, overworked, disconnected, lonely, unhappy. Advertisement This book is also for people who are ready to grapple. There are no quick fixes or bandaids here—there are very few to-dos at all. But the book will guide you through thinking through the way you live your life, and the ways you can change. I heard stories about the power of embracing imperfection and vulnerability. These research participants trusted themselves, and they talked about authenticity and love and belonging in a way that was completely new to me. Advertisement Being a researcher, Brown wanted to know what made these Wholehearted people tick. So she gathered a ton of data, analyzed it, and was aghast to find: Wholehearted people lived their lives quite the opposite of how she did. So, she set out to change that. The Gifts of Imperfection is not a memoir, though. It rests on two triads: courage, compassion, and connection; love, belonging, and worthiness. She calls them guideposts, and each gets a brief chapter: Authenticity.

I devoured this book, pen in hand, and marked up much more than I usually do in any book. Starting with the very first paragraph of the introduction: Wholehearted living is about engaging in our lives from a place of worthiness.

It means cultivating the courage, compassion, and connection to wake up in the morning and think, No matter what gets done and how much is left undone, I am enough. It's going to bed at night thinking, Yes, I am imperfect and vulnerable and sometimes afraid but that doesn't change the truth that I am worthy of love and belonging.

Seriously, I sat there staring at that paragraph for a full ten minutes as I let it sink in. How did the author know? How did she know that I equate my full plate--how much I get done in a day--to my self worth?

How did she know how afraid I am to show my weaknesses especially the weaknesses I haven't fully embraced yet? How did she know that I often don't feel loved?

Or that I don't feel like I really belong anywhere? How did she know? And it dawned on me that maybe we all feel like this to an extent.

The Gifts of Imperfection Wants You to Let Go of Who You're 'Supposed' to Be

And yet, I watch others and I am sure, absolutely sure, that they know something about living that I don't. And maybe they do But maybe they haven't. I admit, that whole thing about Who I Am vs.

Who I Am Supposed to Be gets me every time.

I think it's a fine line between embracing things I shouldn't embrace and being okay with where I am right now. I think that I should strive to be better, and maybe Who I Am is not good enough. So, I admittedly bristled a bit at the subtitle there.
