For a long time, Glennon Doyle has felt like she was living in a cage. She had to be the perfect mother, wife, and Christian, trying to please everyone and meet their expectations. Only when she met and fell in love with a woman did she learn to be free. She learned to stop repressing her desires and regain her freedom. She learned to listen to her intuition and question societal beliefs that she had internalized. She was then able to live a fulfilling life.
