Join Us in Discussing Untamed by Glennon Doyle

I first read Untamed by Glennon Doyle Melton when it was released in 2020. The way she wove her sobriety into the bigger picture of her life spoke to me in so many ways. I immediately read every other book of hers.

In Untamed Glennon discusses what she calls “My One Thing” and that one thing is her sobriety. She says that for her, sobriety isn’t just about stopping something; it’s about starting a particular way of life. Sobriety for her is about living in integrity and not dividing into two selves – The Shown and The Hidden.

In Untamed Doyle shares that she lost herself when she learned how to please. Sobriety, she shares, was her painstaking resurrection. She resurrected the parts of herself she was trained to mistrust, hide, and abandon in order to keep others comfortable

– Her emotions
– Her intuition
– Her imagination
– Her courage

She learned that she’d never be free from pain but that she COULD be free from the FEAR of pain. Anything or anyone that could be lost by her telling the truth wasn’t really hers to begin with. She learned that she’s willing to lose anything that requires her to hide any part of herself.

Doyle goes on to say she’ll never promise to be this way or that way, she will only promise to show up. As she is, wherever she is.
