Have you ever been told you were Too Much?
Too intense. Too sensitive. Too emotional. Too passionate. Too driven. Too smart. Too sensual. Too needy. Too ambitious. Too fat. Too bitchy. Too honest. Too pretty. Too wild. Too intimidating. Just too darn much?
Have you dimmed down the essence of you? Tucked yourself away in order to feel accepted, loved and safe?
This book tells the story of being born a Too Much Little Girl, and throughout my life, oscillating between radiating in my Too Muchness and ruminating in my Not Enoughness.
I have been shunned, misunderstood, ignored, rejected, abused, threatened, and objectified, and as a consequence, I became very small, hiding from myself and my best life.
I was forced to pack down my Too Muchness into a socially acceptable size, to cram the bigness of my energy into a tight box of predictability and conformity.
It was not until I chose to embrace the very thing that ostracized me that my greatest shift occurred.
One day, I told my ‘very personal’ Too Much story. And overnight, I heard the echoes of millions of woman around the world who had also dimmed their radiance, and were finally ready to shine their light. And the Too Much Woman Movement was born.
This is her untold story.
The Too Much Woman is not safe in a world that is afraid of her power. Her bright sparkle that must be dimmed. Her radiance that must be kept in check.
There is a revolution afoot, and it begins with each one of us embracing that which we have kept hidden for far too long. It is time to shine because baby, you just can’t dim the sun!
