It is no news that many of us battle self-image and the accepted norm. Social media does not help, as it has managed to project a particular form laid down by models and famous people. Ladies especially battle this more, and it affects their behaviour and the way they view themselves. Empowering Your Inner Queen by Bella Noel is a book that has come to let you know that, so far, your body form is healthy; it does not need to conform to that figure you see on social media. Easier said than done, right? I had that in mind in the beginning.
Bella Noel invites all females to wear their crowns with pride; she teaches self-confidence, self-esteem, and self-love. Most females do not possess these attributes; however, this book has come to instill those virtues in you. In dealing with these issues, she does not just advise on what one should do; instead, she tries to get to the root cause. For example, in self-image and confidence, she highlights the Imposter Syndrome, a mindset that tries to convince you with feelings of inadequacy. Key points on how to identify and resolve it are given.
This book by this author came at a beautiful time. We are plagued by many feelings of inadequacy and unnecessary expectations, and we stop to appreciate the virtues and contributions we have to offer. In the workplace, women rarely apply for promotions due to these feelings. However, this book has come to change the narrative and enlighten its audience. I was glad that the author had gone through a similar phase in her life because only one who has experienced this would truly understand. She applies her knowledge and experiences to give advice on tackling these issues.
Also inclusive are testimonies from other women who have embraced themselves and built their image over the years. It was truly inspiring to read their stories. This book was a concisely written piece. We always see self-help books extend many pages and turn off the readers, but that was not the case in this book. Also, I did not find it monotonous; instead, it felt like someone was reading it to me, and that kept me engaged and engrossed in the book until I finished. However, I spotted one error that doesn't change its professionally edited nature.
Empowering Your Inner Queen by Bella Noel receives a whopping 5 out of 5 stars from me. It is an essential read; I gained a lot from encountering it. I'm grateful to the author for that. I recommend this book to all women. Teenagers, young adults, and adults would gain a lot from reading it, as the topics treated affect us in this present society in one way or another.
