The Gifts of Imperfection

The Gifts of Imperfection by Brené Brown has been recommended for this resource page by Mari, a member of our community. She talks about how the book has helped her with mindset issues regarding her chronic illness, and it has helped her feel better about not being as physically or emotionally strong as she used to wish she was. Mindset is an extremely important part of overcoming the struggles that come with chronic illness, so we highly recommend checking this book out.
