Thought Catalog // Daring To Take Up Space
By Daniell Koepke
This is for anyone who needs a reminder that you deserve to take up space in the world and that you are enough. In this poetry collection, Daniell Koepke gives voice to the fear and anxiety, as well as the perseverance and strength, that has been fundamental to her own personal growth journey and the path to deeper and more meaningful self-love and acceptance. In her own words, this book is for "the 17-year old Daniell who was convinced she was worthless; who was convinced that she would never survive or amount to anything. This is for the friends and family who never stopped believing in and supporting her. This is for all the people who feel that they have to shrink and hide who they are in order to be loved and accepted and worth something." Paperback. 5 x 7.75 inches.
