BWW Previews: #MeToo Movement Prompts Author To Champion Self-Love For Women
Summer Brooks releases new and relatable book to teach women how to love themselves again and how to build one another up in sisterhood
CHRISTCHURCH, New Zealand - Amid the #MeToo movement of women speaking out against oppression and harassment, author Summer Brooks has recently released her new book, "Free: The Self-Love Guide for Women." Her book is a down-to-earth and relatable guide full of topics for women to reflect on in their own lives.
In "Free," Brooks conveys her message with an honest, humorous and straightforward voice while touching on several areas of life that women can contemplate and improve. The self-help guide is also colored by Brooks' own personal experience.
When Brooks realized her feelings of anxiety and depression were caused by the pressure of living her life according to others' perceptions of her, she decided enough was enough. "One day I examined my life and realized I couldn't maintain the expectations I'd tried to uphold for so long," Brooks said. "Once I stopped living for other people, I was free to be myself."
Writing the book helped Brooks realize that she was her own person, that her past did not define her and that her future was in her own hands. "I hope that by sharing my truth in the book, other women learn to heal and build one another up rather than tear one another down," Brooks said.
"Free" will help readers take back the reins of their own self-worth and stop living according to others' expectations of who they are and who they ought to be.
