Do you find yourself constantly saying yes, even when you should be saying no? Do you try your hardest to please everyone around you, yet still feel like you’re not getting it right?

To write a happier story, you need to take control and become the editor of your most important work – YOU! In Get Real, Sarah Ivens helps you to identify the things that are truly important in life and equips you with the motivation, self-healing techniques and actionable advice needed to improve your mental and physical well-being.

Sarah draws on illuminating research and personal experience: from accepting that her difficult relationship with her father wasn’t her fault and coming to terms with the pain of miscarriage, to ending toxic friendships and turning down a million-dollar job offer.

This book is a kind and gentle reminder that it’s okay to be yourself – because everyone else really is taken.
