Yes Please by Amy Poehler
Feminist Read - Book Review
My Thoughts on the Apology Letter from the Heart
Poehler's story about her apology hits home in the sense that there is someone I want to apologize to and haven't because I am a chicken. This person may bot remember me but that one moment in my past has stuck with me. It also made me angry. I have apologized too much in the past. I have made dozens of apologizes to particular people over time and I know now that what I was apologizing for was actually something they should be apologizing to me and others for. So yes apologize, but know it's for the right thing.
I have enjoyed Amy Poehler's book. Her love of improv is well felt through the book as is her love for her children. She has a lot of good things to say and while I enjoyed the book. I took to long to read it because she wasn't talking my language. I have a hard time connecting with the things she loves and holds dear. She would probably call me a prude. I don't watch the comedy shoes she's been in because I don't find them funny. And my tastes are expanding, but I am not ready for her level yet.
If you love laughter it's a great book and I did laugh a lot throughout it. Books are my favorite form of laughter. So when she writes another one I will pick it up!
Final quote, not really on a positive note
This is what we teach girls to feel... We need to find a way to remove this voice.
