Everyone has a sam: Meeting the inner critic and rewriting the rules
Inner critics are the worst kind of self-talk demon. We all have one, and when we listen to it, we can spiral into rumination, depression, and anxiety, fueling isolation and withdrawal. This was me, until I named my critic Sam. I realized Sam is actually just a scared little bugaboo, waiting for a hug and some ice cream.
With humor and vulnerability I offer a glimpse into the mind of a ruminating, negative self-talking, spiraling woman who is also at her core resilient, powerful, and creative. Through this fictionalized memoir, I invite all of us to share our messes and overcome them in community.
Everyone Has a Sam is a fresh take on a self-help, bringing together the vulnerability and psychology of Brene Brown with the humor and illustrations of Shel Silverstein.
"Rosi Greenberg's Everyone has a Sam is a masterpiece. In its refined simplicity both visually and thematically it uniquely invokes simultaneously to the transcendent perspective of awareness and love that enables us to do deep healing work and tenderly calls to the most hurt dimensions of our psyche. A perfect offering for any age it portrays the hope of self-acceptance, self-blessing and true transformation. I offer my highest possible recommendation for this inspired and poignant book."
