Geared to women who too often find themselves meeting the wants of others at the expense of their own needs, The Courage to Be Yourself provides necessary tools to help readers transform their fears into the courage to express their own authentic selves. By sharing her own journey and the journey of other women, Sue Patton Thoele helps readers learn to set boundaries, change self-defeating behavior patterns, communicate effectively, and, most importantly, become a loving and tolerant friend to themselves.
"More than any other author, Sue Patton Thoele has helped me understand what it is like to be a woman in today's culture. She writes like an angel yet somehow transcends words and communicates directly to the reader's heart. The Courage to Be Yourself is a classic, a masterpiece, yet it is so honest that each time you read it, it speaks with a fresh, new voice." --Hugh Prather, author of The Little Book of Letting Go
