This is a powerful little book that not only provides enlightenment, but encouragement, and most importantly ~ hope, that a life filled with all three is not only possible, but a natural birthright to survivors of physical, emotional and sexual abuse.
Tackling a highly sensitive and difficult to talk about subject, Susan's has managed to present her story in a way that feels as though she's sitting right beside you, taking you by the hand, all the while encouraging the reader that support and resources are available.
Each chapter begins with "Let's Talk About" a particular topic. For example, Chapter 5 is titled: "Let's Talk About Triggers". In this powerful chapter (and throughout the book) she shares stories of her childhood that's created what she refers to as triggers, (emotional, sometimes physical responses associated to a memory).
She goes on to share how today she uses those triggers as a tool to empower herself on a daily, and often times moment to moment basis to ground herself and remain in the present moment once she's triggered by a past memory.
In the remaining chapters Susan speaks candidly on the topics of shame, the offenders, body and brain wiring, the need for healing and the need for healthy boundaries just to name a few.
Finally she concludes each chapter with simple, and yet powerful exercises designed to support the reader on their own path towards self discovery and healing.Read more ›
