Do you wish you were cooler, more attractive, smarter, or more athletic? You're not alone! Unrealistic images and messages from social media, TV shows, movies, books, and magazines all make it easy for teens to get caught up in a never-ending comparison game. But comparing yourself to others can also lead to feelings of unworthiness that get in the way of your happiness. So, how can you stop focusing on your flaws and embrace who you really are-someone who is truly awesome. Just As You Are is packed with simple ways to help quiet your inner critic, overcome feelings of inadequacy, and love who you are. You'll find powerful mindfulness and self-compassion tools for dealing with negative thoughts and feelings, and tips for pursuing things you love and value most. With this book, you'll learn to move past your "Imperfections," celebrate your true strengths, and go after what really matters in your life. Book jacket.
