My jeans are getting tighter
But my eyes are shining brighter
My thoughts are getting lighter
I always knew I was a fighter

About the author

Ananda de Jager (1993) was born in Goes, the Netherlands. After getting amenorrhea in 2018, she went on a spiritual healing journey, facing her inner demons and having a strong calling to inspire others. While doing so, she shared many poems written by others on her Instagram account. She noticed people connected with her through these poems, and decided to start writing herself. Putting things on paper helped her healing process, and re-reading her poems gave her reminders of why she is doing what she does.

Ananda's boek heeft me meerdere malen tot tranen gebracht - maar dat vind ik helemaal niet erg. In een wereld waar het taboe is om te praten over tegenslag, verdriet en mentale gezondheid, maakt Ananda de dappere keuze om je intiem kennis te laten maken met haar journey in self-love en recovery.

This book was a brilliant read. I felt Ananda's pain, struggle, achievement, and victory throughout the poems. Reading the book I felt like I was sitting there with her and I felt like I knew who she was without ever actually meeting her. The book opened my eyes to a world that I knew little about, and I am so glad that I had the opportunity to pick up a copy of this book.

Inspirerend. Het geeft een kijkje in een confronterend en bijzonder proces van herstel en een jonge vrouw. Prachtig geschreven en het neemt je mee. Dankjewel voor deze inspirerende woorden, lieve Ananda!

Het boek is schitterend. Een intiem inkijkje in de struggles van een jonge vrouw. Confronterend, open en eerlijk. De gedichten hebben een diepe indruk op mij gemaakt.

Wat een fresh breath of air. Heden ten dage lezen we zoveel over body positivity dat we vergeten stil te staan bij alle modder dat op komt zodra we het pad van zelfliefde kiezen. In dit boek neemt Ananda je mee op deze dappere tocht. Ze is niet verlegen haar gedachten bloot te leggen en haar inner-demons aan te kijken. Een inspiratie voor ieder die naar harmonie in zichzelf streeft.
