This is for anyone who needs a reminder that you deserve to take up space in the world and that you are enough. In her first poetry collection, Daniell gives voice to the fear and anxiety, as well as the perseverance and strength, that has been fundamental to her own personal growth journey and the path to deeper and more meaningful self-love and acceptance. In her own words, this book is for “the 17-year-old Daniell” who was convinced she was worthless; who was convinced she would never survive or amount to anything. This is for the friends and family who never stopped believing in and supporting her. This is for all the people who feel that they have to shrink and hide who they are in order to be loved and accepted and worth something.

About the Author
Daniell Koepke is a writer, clinical psychology doctoral student, and therapist in training. She’s also the founder of a space called the Internal Acceptance Movement (I. A.M), which seeks to promote mental health and foster self-acceptance. Her writing is guided by the concept of unapologetic vulnerability – giving people permission to honor their feelings as they come and to take up space in the world as their authentic selves. She is a firm believer in the idea that vulnerability can be a super power that connects us, eradicates shame, and helps us heal.
