That's her business As a writer she has the responsibility of total honesty Few consider readers have responsibility as well When we slap down 24 for a hardcover an open mind is necessary The nonfiction contract is she will be honest and we will listenThis is not a how to on friendships We learn through loss As one reviewer said The author has dragged me along countless failed friendships without learning or growth We are a very self serv

    PDF/EPUB She Matters eBook à Ë chickenshedcafe.uk matters pdf, She Matters PDFI tried to separate the writing from the writer After reading her first memoir I wanted to like both The writing depended on a lifetime of failed friendships and ultimately the writing failed because the writer relied on the stories writing themselves I didn't finish the book because I lost interest I rolled my eyes a lot and felt that her narcissism got in the way of any real growth in both the writing and her own developmentI kept thinking she would be happier and better off wi

    PDF/EPUB She Matters eBook à Ë chickenshedcafe.uk matters pdf, She Matters PDFUpdate I finished the book so I could participate in book club I walk away with a few thoughts1 having a maternal role model is very important in a young girl's life; without one as a girl matures she makes fruitless attempts at replicating that missing role through failed relationships;2 I am forever grateful that my mother was and still is an incredible role model for me and my sister;3 I will strive to be a role model for my daughters and count my blessings that my daughters also have my mom and sister as role models Hating this book Not sure I can finish it The author has dragged me along countless failed friendships without learning or growth Selfish narcissistic juvenile I complain about it so much that my husband first asked that I stop talking about it but then asked that I stop reading it Before the seuester while I was complaining about the book my husband asked if I got to the lesbian part yet He has not read the book he was just making a brash generalization about women

    PDF/EPUB She Matters eBook à Ë chickenshedcafe.uk matters pdf, She Matters PDFI heard about this book on NPR one day and immediately went home and got it on my Nook I can't say it was a great book but it was really a very good book It actually is not just about friendship but also about boundaries and personal growth Susanna Sonnenberg took a good look at herself over the years and delivered these stories with a very honest dialogue about herself She owns her shortcomings and failures and is completely unapologetic about her faults I know in my lifetime I've had a number of close female friendships that would start off strong and intense then crash and burn Sometimes I had no idea why or what happened Sometimes I knew but just didn't

    PDF/EPUB She Matters eBook à Ë chickenshedcafe.uk matters pdf, She Matters PDFThough I thought it ended rather abruptly I truly enjoyed this book by the end I must admit to being attracted to any story that involves a level of dysfunction I also found myself fascinated by her ability to break down each friendship and see it for what it truly wasis with an honesty that I marvel at I found the very frank moments kind of refreshing and I would be a liar if I said it hadn't got me thinking about the friends I have had I am now reflecting on what they meant to me at the time how I may have used them both intentionally and not what I wanted from them what I got from them what they may have gotten from me who I was when I was with them whether I was able to be ME with them and what if any profound andor lasting impressions the women I have called friends may have had on me and my life I am amazed at the authors ability to spe

    PDF/EPUB She Matters eBook à Ë chickenshedcafe.uk matters pdf, She Matters PDFI loved Sonnenberg's first book an account of growing up with a troubled and abusive mother And while I enjoyed this book at first I eventually put it down out of sheer exhaustion The author is like a blood sucker needy and selfish wanting from her friends while refusing to give anything in return I was so sick of her No wonder all her friends leave her she's like a carbon copy of her crazy mom

    PDF/EPUB She Matters eBook à Ë chickenshedcafe.uk matters pdf, She Matters PDFThis is a GoodReads First Reads Giveaways review Sonnenberg's recollection of friendships she has shared past and present is blatantly honest and humorous She uses vivid colors that saturate her canvas as she paints a picture we probably have all seen before whether we'd like to admit it or not If you look up the word friend in the dictionary it provides several definitions Each one perfectly fitting depending on which friend one may be referring to of course One defines a friend as a member of the same nation or party Now personally I consider some of my co workers friends just because we share the same office a nation But I can recall uite a few harrowing days that I know I wouldn't dare reach out to them for advice or looking for a shoulder to cry on Another describes friend as a person who is on good terms with one another one who is not hostile The author has told a couple of stories where she is on good terms witha friend but she describe
