Dare to be kind : how extraordinary compassion can transform our world by Lizzie Velasquez( )

4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

YouTube sensation and celebrated motivational speaker Lizzie Velasquez shows us how we can learn to accept all parts of ourselves and others, and in doing so create a "culture of kindness" and a more compassionate world.Born with a rare genetic condition, Lizzie Velasquez always knew she was different, but it wasn't until she was much older that she understood what that meant to others. At 17 years old, she came across a viral video titled "World's Ugliest Woman"--only to discover that it featured her. In response, she decided to stand up on behalf of victims everywhere and created one of the web's most popular YouTube channels ever and a TED talk that has drawn tens of millions of viewers.In this daring, revelatory book, Lizzie reveals the hidden forces that give rise to self-doubt, shame, and cruelty, and empowers us to redirect them to unlock empathy and kindness for ourselves and others. She pulls from examples in her own life--such as battles with anxiety and coping with disappointment--to share uplifting insight on how we can overcome obstacles in our path and move forward with greater positivity and the right mental attitude.Brilliantly drawing on Lizzie's wisdom and sentiment, Dare to Be Kind presents the path to acceptance, love, and tolerance, and provides a framework to help us lead confident, resilient lives and, ultimately, forge a radically compassionate world
