Description
Hay una voz de nostalgia dentro de cada mujer. Nos esforzamos mucho por ser buenos: buenas madres, hijas, socios, empleados, ciudadanos y amigos. Creemos que todo este esfuerzo nos har̀ sentir vivos. En cambio, nos deja sintǐndonos cansados, estancados, abrumados y decepcionados. Miramos nuestras vidas, relaciones y mundo, y nos preguntamos: ¿No se supon̕a que todo era m̀s hermoso que esto? Silenciamos r̀pidamente esa pregunta, dicǐndonos que debemos estar agradecidos. Ocultamos nuestro descontento latente, incluso de nosotros mismos. Hasta que lleguemos a nuestro punto de ebullici̤n. Hace cuatro ąos, Glennon Doyle, autor de ̌xito en ventas respaldado por Oprah, reconocido activista y humanitario, esposa y madre de tres hijos, estaba hablando en una conferencia cuando una mujer entr̤ en la habitaci̤n. Glennon la mir̤ y se enamor̤ instant̀neamente. Tres palabras inundaron su mente: Ah̕ est̀. Al principio, Glennon asumi̤ que estas palabras le vinieron de lo alto. Pronto se dio cuenta de que le ven̕an desde adentro. Glennon finalmente estaba escuchando su propia voz, la voz que hab̕a sido silenciada por ďcadas de condicionamiento cultural, adicciones insensibles y lealtades institucionales. Esta era la voz de la chica que Glennon hab̕a sido antes de que el mundo le dijera quǐn deb̕a ser. Ella jur̤ nunca m̀s abandonarse a s̕ misma. Decidi̤ construir una vida propia, basada en su deseo, intuici̤n e imaginaci̤n individuales. Recuperar̕a su verdadero yo ind̤mito. Conmovedora y estruendosa, contundente y tierna, Untamed es tanto una memoria como una llamada de atenci̤n estimulante. Ofrece un examen penetrante y electrizante de las expectativas restrictivas que se generan a las mujeres desde el nacimiento; muestra c̤mo esforzarse por cumplir esas expectativas hace que las mujeres se sientan insatisfechas y perdidas; y revela que cuando dejamos de abandonarnos a nosotros mismos y, en cambio, abandonamos las expectativas que el mundo tiene de nosotros, nos convertimos en mujeres que finalmente pueden mirar nuestras vidas y reconocer: Ah̕ est̀ ella. Untamed nos muestra c̤mo ser valientes. Como insiste Glennon: cuanto m̀s valientes seamos, m̀s suerte tenemos.
Description
There is a voice of longing inside every woman. We strive so mightily to be good: good mothers, daughters, partners, employees, citizens, and friends. We believe all this striving will make us feel alive. Instead, it leaves us feeling weary, stuck, overwhelmed, and underwhelmed. We look at our lives, relationships, and world, and wonder: Wasn't it all supposed to be more beautiful than this? We quickly silence that question, telling ourselves to be grateful. We hide our simmering discontent--even from ourselves. Until we reach our boiling point. Four years ago, Glennon Doyle--bestselling Oprah-endorsed author, renowned activist and humanitarian, wife and mother of three--was speaking at a conference when a woman entered the room. Glennon looked at her and fell instantly in love. Three words flooded her mind: There She Is. At first, Glennon assumed these words came to her from on high. Soon she realized that they came to her from within. Glennon was finally hearing her own voice--the voice that had been silenced by decades of cultural conditioning, numbing addictions, and institutional allegiances. This was the voice of the girl Glennon had been before the world told her who to be. She vowed to never again abandon herself. She decided to build a life of her own--one based on her individual desire, intuition, and imagination. She would reclaim her true, untamed self. Soulful and uproarious, forceful and tender, Untamed is both a memoir and a galvanizing wake-up call. It offers a piercing, electrifying examination of the restrictive expectations women are issued from birth; shows how hustling to meet those expectations leaves women feeling dissatisfied and lost; and reveals that when we quit abandoning ourselves and instead abandon the world's expectations of us, we become women who can finally look at our lives and recognize: There She Is. Untamed shows us how to be brave. As Glennon insists: The braver we are, the luckier we get.
