Take Your Own Advice
Learn to Trust Your Inner Voice and Start Helping Yourself
For those who are givers, carers, and empaths, a guide to focusing that energy on yourself--even if that feels frightening, from popular LGBTQ+ activist and advocate Jeffrey Marsh.
Like many of us, Jeffrey Marsh was conditioned to have an outward focus--to give to others, to be a good listener, and to be the one who gave the best advice. In Marsh's case, it was a method of survival. Growing up genderfluid in an unaccepting family, Marsh did everything they could to meet the needs of others and not have needs of their own. And ultimately, this meant Marsh put themself in the backseat of their own life.
In this heartfelt and sincere book, Marsh shares their story and the lessons they learned on the path back to themselves. Whether you're a survivor of abuse and trauma like Marsh or you've passively accepted that your worth ought to be defined by your usefulness to others, Take Your Own Advice will give you the confidence to lead your life on your terms, and to prioritize what's important: you.
It's time that you learn to put yourself first, to take care of yourself, and to ask others to listen to you for a change. You do give the best advice, after all!
