The Most Meaningful Book I Read in 2023

The mountain is you ⛰️

The entire book revolves around discovering self-worth, healing from past traumas, controlling emotions, accepting oneself, choosing our environment, and steering the course of life. The metaphor of the mountain reveals our fears and vulnerabilities in life, symbolizing the extensive journey individuals must undertake throughout their lives.

This book guides us on how to embrace ourselves, set clear directions, and reject self-destructive behaviors. Often, individuals need to overcome numerous mountains to break free from self-imposed limitations and reach the peaks of their lives.

Share a few sentences that I really like:

It is very hard to show up as the person you want to be when you are surrounded by an environment that makes you feel like a person you aren’t.

  • Self-sabotage is what happened when we refuse to consciously meet our innermost needs, often because we do not believe we are capable of handling them.
  • Often in life, our biggest anxiety comes not from what’s actually happening, but how we think about what is happening.
  • The greatest act to self-love is to no longer accept a life you are unhappy with.
