If you or someone you love has or has not been in therapy, but craves another way to handle certain situations in your life/lives, I encourage you to check out at least one of the Daring Way courses led by Kelly. My experience began with Rising Strong, then I moved on to The Gifts of Imperfection, followed by Daring Greatly. Whether these books are supposed to be read in a certain sequence or not, their contents, associated workbooks and short videos support whichever book/course you’ve chosen to begin your self-supporting journey. And, they even build upon each other.
Sure, it’s possible to read these books on our own and gain from them. Most definitely! However, when we read and do the work together, we gain a better understanding of our struggles to become the best versions of ourselves, because of the accountability and connection factor these groups provide.
Thanks to Brene Brown’s research and Kelly Gardner, I am continuing to become the best version of myself and believe me, I’m not the only one noticing. But, if I were, it’s still all worth it!
