The Woman in the Mirror
How to Stop Confusing What You Look Like with Who You are

Woman in the Mirror by Cynthia M. Bulik
Book DescriptionMany women--regardless of income, size, shape, ethnicity, and age--are uncomfortable in their own skin. We fixate on our body image and try endless diets, implants, Botox, hair extensions, and new shoes, but it's never enough. The problem is that girls and women have been socialized to mistakenly conflate body-esteem and self-esteem. Body esteem refers to how you think and feel about your physical appearance: your size, shape, hair, and features. Self-esteem refers to how you think and feel about your personality, your role in relationships, your accomplishments, and values-everything that contributes to who you are as a person. The Woman in the Mirror goes beyond typical self-esteem books to dig deep into the origins of women's problems with body image. Psychologist Cynthia Bulik guides readers in the challenging task of disentangling self-esteem from body esteem and taking charge of the insidious negative self-talk that started as early as when you first realized you didn't really look like a fairy princess. By reprogramming how we feel about ourselves and our bodies, we can practice healthy eating and sensible exercise, and focus on the many things we have to offer our family, community, and job. Bulik provides us the tools to reclaim our self-confidence and to respect and love who we are.
