My Review of her

Her by Pierre Alex Jeanty

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This year I went through a divorce. I felt a little lost afterward. I felt like maybe there was something wrong with me. That had to be why my husband cheated on me and was constantly abusive. There was a pretty dark period. I knew I needed to find some light, and for me, that always came from books. All of life’s greatest lessons can be learned from books.

I had seen posts on Facebook where people were sharing these quotes, and those quotes turned out to be from a book of poetry written by a man named Pierre Alex Jeanty. It was this book that shone a light in my darkness.

All the poems are short, just a couple of lines long, but that pack a lot of meaning. They are all about loving yourself, believing that there is someone out there that will love you, and not letting anyone treat you less than you deserve.

A few of my favorites.

Them losing interest doesn’t make you less interesting

You can learn so much about her by exploring her scars and asking about her fears

Guard your heart, but do not make it a forbidden place for everyone. There will be people who are worthy of entry

She didn’t need a hero. She didn’t need to be rescued. She needed something different from the bad she had known. She wanted a man who’s mouth wasn’t full of half-truths and heart crippled by the fear of commitment.

Your smile will be like the sun cracking through the clouds to the man of your dreams.

Take my advice, and get this book if you’re going through darkness, a breakup, trying to love yourself, you just like quotes, or just need a quick easy read. You won’t regret it.
