No. Of course it doesn’t. Hold the answers I mean.
I don’t believe in one size fits all.
Given that, my recently published ebook Doing gentle with an edge does hold answers. Ideas. Suggestions and questions. That much I can say. And yes, for me, what I write about in Doing gentle with an edge are the answers that I came up with as I was doing just that, learning how to do gentle towards myself, as I didn’t realize that was an option until I stood in a therapists office at the age of… oh, say, 34 or so?! Being 48, that actually sounds really young. However. I do think it is amazing I did not know gentle to me was an option for the first 34 years of my life.
Unfortunately, I know the epidemic of harshness as I call it is in full swing, and this book just might be the nudge someone needs to lean into doing more gentle towards themselves. It’s written to be descriptive and not prescriptive, and I’d love to hear from you if you think I succeeded!
