How do you become your best self? By being a little more selfish!

Selfishness is perhaps the world’s most controversial, undesirable, and least understood trait … particularly for women. As wives, mothers, daughters, girlfriends, and professionals, we bend over backward to avoid this stigmatizing label and all the judgement it carries. But at what cost?

In Self-ish, clinical psychologist Sunita Osborn challenges everything we know about selfishness. With radical candor and bold humor, she dispels the myths and distortions that surround the fundamental psychological concepts of self-care, self-trust, self-love, and self-discipline, and explains how these terms have been diluted and warped by social media, societal norms, and our upbringings. Finally, she provides a pathway to self-leadership with encouragement, tools, and concrete steps to foster a healthier relationship with our whole selves.

In a time when women’s needs, autonomy, and safety continue to be challenged, it is essential for women everywhere to unapologetically nurture our personal growth with strength and wisdom. This provocative new book shows us how being selfish can actually change our lives (and the lives of those we love) for the better. Join the movement of selfish women who support each other’s commitment to becoming their best selves!
