“Compassionate people ask for what they need. They say no when they need to, and when they say yes, they mean it. They're compassionate because their boundaries keep them out of resentment.”
SUMMARY: The book is a self-help resource that has the potential to change lives. It is a striking yet warm challenge to face life’s failure and hurts squarely, to embrace them, and to use them as the rich source of growth that they are.
1. Readers are inspired to look in the mirror of life with courage each time they get knocked off their centre through mistakes, lessons, and the inevitable disappointments that are part of being truly alive.
2. Vulnerable human beings can get up and keep going stronger than before if they harness the wisdom that when things fall apart they can be a breakthrough.
3. Learn to appreciate and integrate life’s lessons and experiences with grace and courage. This is done by facing and embracing our reality; it’s about using our perceived hurts and errors for our greater good. This sits at the core of life, and it has the power to be a game-changer, to empower us to heal and to engage fully in our journey.
