I finished Love Warrior by Glennon Doyle Melton a fews months ago and have been meaning to write about it since. You know those books that come to you exactly when you need them? This was like that for me. I raved about it to anyone who would listen. While I was reading Glennon’s words, I couldn’t help but feel connected to her.
In short, this book made being me make sense. I am a sensitive, emotional person and reading Love Warrior made me feel like that is okay; that maybe it’s even normal. And that’s a line I’m rarely fed.
How refreshing to read that having feelings – complicated, intense, scattered emotions – is just apart of the game. Whew. What a relief.
I don’t have to live this muted, mundane life with a limited emotional range.
I can cry hard. Laugh loud. Be in lust with my yoga practice. And periodically feel like my whole life’s tale is told in a song so good it just has to be turned up full blast.
Love Warrior is a highly recommended read. But be sure to have another book lined up after, because you’ll be done with this one before you know it.
