Why did I choose this book?

Being a new and first-time mother, I felt I am not giving proper attention to myself. I don't get enough time for myself. So, I chose this book to fall in love with myself again and to make the process smooth.

Suddenly, I started searching for books to know myself a little better. And guess what?  The book title “I love myself caught my attention. When I went through its sample on Amazon kindle, I realized, yes! This is the book I have been looking for for a long time.

About the book:

The book is divided into three sections:

      • Life-Realities
      • Relationships
      • Spirituality

Few exercises are also given for mental workout at the end of the book. Each section has few chapters which are supposed to be completed with a practical exercise.

The first section depicts all about how you can accept and know yourself better.

The second section depicts the relationship between a child and a parent. How relationships can be nurtured well whether it's between the life partners or the child-parent relationship.

Thirdly, one of my favorite sections is about how to connect with your inner self i.e. Via spirituality.  It works wonders if we practice it.

About the author: Vandana Sehgal

The author is a Life Skills Coach, Mentor, and Writer. This is her first book. She has expressed clearly how she overcame her negative mindset and was able to connect with herself.

It can easily be noticed in the book what all she did to fall in love with herself again.  Thus, she chose compliment over the complaint, connection over comparison, and confidence over criticism.

How is this book helpful?

    • To self-realization
    • To fall in love with yourself again
    • To accept your mistakes
    • To nurture our relationships
    • To accept our emotions
    • Writing is a therapy
    • Listen to your inner voice

Loving yourself is the most beautiful feeling ever. One should always prioritize themselves in terms of their health, to pursue their dreams, and to pamper oneself. We often forget to take care of ourselves and get stuck in our day-to-day responsibilities of life.

Why do I recommend this book?

If you’re stuck in your day-to-day tight compartments. If you’ve forgotten how to prioritize yourself.  If you want to get out of your monotonous routine. If you want to see yourself a new one then this should be the right pick for you.

Who is the book for?

This book is for those who want to discover their journey through SELF-LOVE.

If I am expecting a little more from the book, then it would be. The author would have thrown some light on "how to practice Mindfulness". Otherwise, This book will definitely make you fall in love with yourself.

You will not be the same once you read the book thoroughly. You should definitely not miss the best part of the book is “doing practical exercise”.

What emotion was I going through while reading this book?

Happy? Sad? Angry? Stress? Frustration?


I was just falling into the process of accepting myself completely. And, that too without seeking permission of anyone.

Learnings from the book:

    • Practice mindfulness
    • Spend some time in silence.
    • Prioritize yourself
    • Discover self-love
    • We should give love and respect to our closest circle and etc.

This is one of the best self-love books which I’ve read as of now.

I finished reading one chapter just after waking up in the morning and one before sleeping. This way I was able to focus on exercises as well. It's not about what you read but by following it practically.

So, what’re you waiting for?
