Finding Me, Myself and I: Journey to Loving your Authentic Self by Yogita Ridgley is an engaging memoir of the author's journey of self-discovery, acceptance, self-awareness, and self-love. Self-critical thoughts can cause anxiety, and the author's quest to take control of her life will motivate and encourage readers to beat all the odds, realize how their weaknesses have made them stronger, and leave their emotional baggage filled with guilt, depression, anger, and fear. She speaks of 30 years of her life where she lived with a sense of not being loved, and how her teacher's constant saying she was not good enough affected her thinking, caused her so much pain, and made her slowly become someone she actually was not.
Finding Me, Myself and I is uplifting, motivating, and encouraging, and gives hope to readers who have been made to feel they are worthless to understand and love their true selves confidently. The book is raw, straightforward, and honest, and will strike a chord with many readers who will be able to find the author's story real and relatable. Yogita Ridgley speaks about her 30 years of living without self-worth, self-confidence, self-acceptance, and self-love; the author is very honest in how she looked at life and how keeping a journal helped her release her emotions from her body. Yogita Ridgley's story will encourage readers to break the cycle and create a life by activating the powers of compassion, tolerance, grace, intuition, patience, nurturing, creativity, fierceness, and forgiveness. The Five Stages of Self-Discovery based on her own life experience are helpful for readers when it comes to focusing on the end goal of processing their inner goals and minds so that they end up loving themselves.
