LOVE WARRIOR BY GLENNON DOYLE MELTON—
LOVE WARRIOR Written by Glennon Doyle Melton tells Melton’s life story of how she was a bulimic when she was a young teen—as soon as she hit puberty, she felt odd and out of place and like she didn’t belong anymore. So she dealt with it by not eating much food and throwing up, but smiling on the outside and acting like everything was great.
Love Warrior is a book describing what millions of women go through when we are suddenly thrust into our teen years. It sucks, but we have to deal with getting older, leaving our childhood behind and becoming a responsible adult.
After going to a mental health facility which she ends up loving because she feels more secure and normal she must face life on the outside and does get better but still feels like a mess inside. She eats as little as possible, and becomes an alcoholic. Starting college and living away from home she throws herself into the party lifestyle, does drugs, drinks excessive amounts of booze and somehow manages to become a school teacher, but still sleeps with whatever moves and truly has no self worth. She gets pregnant has an abortion and after getting pregnant again decides to marry her boyfriend, who we find out later on has problems of his own. He is a sex addict and screws around on her as soon as they get married.
Sound like a Danielle Steel novel. yet? Well, actually this is Glennon Doyle Melton’s real life story of how she decides to finally grow up. She decides to deal head on as a warrior. She figures because she and her husband are both messes, why not work it out together, stay married and love each other harder. Melton is hit with a thunderbolt to the head in a hot yoga class while meditating on how she is going to solve her problems. She becomes a warrior as in a warrior yoga pose. (HAHA!) Get it?
Love Warrior leaves a lasting effect and may help us change our lives for the better. Buying this book is a lot cheaper than getting therapy, or getting a divorce. We get to see how messed up Melton was and how she decided to work harder, love stronger and deal with her problems. YAY!! Of course, this means we can take her life experience and do the same.
GREAT BOOK! I highly recommend Love Warrior.Momzinga.com.
