The journey to self-esteem is set in motion by an encounter with something we all have: a good flaw. And acceptance - just saying yes to the presence of a good flaw - is the way to cross into a world where wholeness, realness and self-expression can put an end to bullying and combat negativity with positivity. For anyone wanting to prepare for the social-emotional challenges they have to look forward to in school or dealing with the insecurities that arise while finding your way in the world, as well as anyone who cares about young people (parents, teachers, mentors, psychologists, social workers and such), FLAWD is an energetic guide for seeing flaws as the doorway to something more. With dynamic advice from teens and celebrities around the world, FLAWD is a perfect manifesto for readers looking to stop hate in the world. Look at yourself: The importance of being a seeker, not a knower Play with perspective: How your view of you is totally up to you Embrace your totality: This includes all of you, the agony and the ecstasy! Redefine what defines you: See failure as the freedom to working it out and flaws as the doorway to your depths Use influence: Avoiding gossip, bullying and other negative influences for more skilful ones, including the simple, yet powerful, smile With renewed awareness, readers will learn they can be a light to the world, letting others know that instead of (flaw) shame, it's possible to feel compassion, instead of (flaw) embarrassment, it's possible to experience curiosity, instead of (flaw) limitation, it's possible to know freedom.
