A good, short read for survivors curious about what the healing process involves. Written from the author's personal perspective about the impact and effect the abuse had on her, and not so much the retelling of gory details, which I appreciated as a survivor myself. The author also shares intimately and openly about her personal triggers, symptoms, and coping skills that she's discovered on her unique journey. I found this encouraging and validating as I attempt to do the same for myself. I felt less alone, less weird, and gained confidence in my own healing journey after reading this book.

As an adult who was sexually abused at the hands of a foster father who was also a very well known minister~ I resonated with every word that Susan wrote. For the first time I felt someone put into words what I have not been able to do and gave me a voice. I wept because it is my story and it is a book that speaks my truth. The sexual abuse weaved its shame and sometimes paralyzingly fear into every fiber of my being. It is my story but it does not have to define me. Heart2Heart Hope flowing~

I appreciate the author's courage, experience and insight. I did feel that the chapters kind of dropped off without the resolution I was looking for. Still, I'm glad I read it.

Susan Jacobi speaks to the child inside of the survivor of childhood sexual abuse. This is so important to make that child aware that it is not their fault. They were not responsible for what was going on. Yes, children are victimized but the adult can choose to not be a "Victim" and become a "Survivor". Susan Jacobi states this fact clearly and inspires hope.

Susan Jacobi speaks in plain and honest language how child abuse affects its victims all through their life. As someone who was sexually abused in childhood it has marred my life in so many ways. Like Susan I sought professional help in my 40's and alternative therapies in my 50's that finally broke the flashbacks and blocks it was for me in my relationships. Susan's voice to my heart and I felt her struggles yet her book offered hope in releasing the bonds that child abuse can hold on us throughout life. This is a small book with a big hopeful message that I read completely in one sitting on a long plane trip. I recommend this heart filled book to anyone who has suffered some form of child abuse.

I love Susan's courageous, compassionate and practical approach to this difficult subject matter. The book is easy to read, yet packed with simple, straightforward support and next steps for those who have been touched in any way by the tragedy of abuse.

How to Love Yourself: The Hope after Child Abuse is an excellent resource written in an engaging and open way and includes both candid stories and gentle guidance. The book presents a well-rounded set of insights and first steps. Hand in hand with professional support, it provides a pathway to greater healing and hope.
