Recommended Books with Quotes

Self Compassion by Kristin Neff
“Rather than wandering around in problem-solving mode all day, thinking mainly of what you want to fix about yourself or your life, you can pause for a few moments throughout the day to marvel at what’s not broken.”
Maybe You Should Talk to Someone by Lori Gottlieb
