Why Bother? Because Self-Help Is Never Stupid: TRANSFORM BEING PISSED-OFF, NUMB, in DENIAL, or EMOTIONAL INTO PEACE & PASSION Paperback – May 5, 2014
|New from||Used from|
Du'Sage speaks to the particular revelation that, "the unconventional expands what is possible". "Moment(s) of recognition" and acceptance of her own growth, address the "contradictions, perceptions, interpretations, and misinterpretations" that trip us up along our own journey. Du'Sage bridges the gap between self-help and clinical, with inspirationally gained insight and application. Find your own truth, and begin to experience fully the totality of who you are!

"The book gets my personal recommendation, and I feel that the world would be a more light-filled place if everybody read this book. Buy it, read it, live it, then share it with others you think may benefit from its message. This is a heartful work that can be read again and again over the years, and always get something new out of it.
"If everybody in the world could fully live what Du'Sage shares, our world would be a far more developed, compassionate, and transformed place."
- Keith Varnum
From the Author
My goal is to help those who have suffered, from any type of abuse, find their voice and step beyond recovery; step through the looking glass into conscious awareness. Abuse, particularly sexual, is uncomfortable for many to discuss and causes victims to suffer in silence. The trauma from abuse can cause some victims to suffer for a lifetime. Heart-centered, spiritual, conscious awareness can dramatically lessen that effect. Statistically, this problem is off the charts, and only based on what is reported. With statistics so high, and so many suffering in silence, chances are you know someone who has been abused. Helping victims find a voice, and heal from this issue will dramatically reduce the problem from ever being created in the first place, but it starts with helping those who are already suffering.

WHY BOTHER is written in a style that could be described as deep. However, it is not like reading a psychology textbook. Instead, it is written as though you might be speaking with a friend who encourages you to become aware, grounded, and to live in the moment. Only then, will you be able to overcome crippling stress, fear, and worry. We interpret our emotions with attachments.
“Why bother” is more than a concept as us as humans really do matter and this is not just another self-help book, but a belief that gets to the very heart of our psychic, and finds out why we struggle. Sadly abuse is the beginning cord. It’s amazing how just breathing words such as peace, freedom, acceptance and more can create such an inner change within us. I love the music connection that allows us a familiarity that we can all relate to as music does sooth the savage beast within us. Using the link to Martha’s website will not only lead the reader to her playlist but also to more information.
The writing style is deep but deep into the understanding not textbook psycho mumble-jumble that can’t be understood. Such as the lava that boils within us and how to use instead of boiling anger but to use creatively. So much clarity in simple thought that the “aha moments” actually start in the preface and introduction!
We can be healed of our past pains and hurts just as the title clearly states: “transform being pissed-off, numb, in denial or emotional into peace and passion”. Martha is our friend, confidant and guide on an exceptional journey that we must all take to achieve inner peace.
