"Love how the body scans and daily prompts are different for each day. The social worker in me appreciates the various therapeutic modalities you used in your prompts, such as narrative therapy and CBT."


Social Worker, DEI Practitioner

"I love how there is not any fake positivity in this journal, it is all valuable and allows people accept their feelings and emotions as they work to find compassion for themselves."



Mother of 4 girls

"The part where Melissa talks about how many of us do not love ourselves because of the messages given to us through societal norms (as marginalized people), was also very eye-opening. We know these things, but we do not slow down to self reflect on what we carry in our day to day lives."
