Hello, bon jour, aloha ... first time post here so feel free to move it or help me out in any way!
This seems to be the week for book releases, as I'm happy to announce my own new book, "How to Reclaim Your Life When It's Been Stolen From You," is now on amazon:
This book is the result of years of listening to exJWs and others talking about their struggles to move on after leaving their old environment, and learning what has worked for them, and for me. Inside, I talk about anger issues and how to manage those feelings, why you might be overwhelmingly sad even after leaving your old environment, how mental filters can be keeping you from moving on, and how you may have fallen into unhealthy archetypes or patterns of behavior after leaving your religion or relationship.
I also talk about one sticking point for many people, and that's the subject of forgiveness ... why it doesn't always work, why you may not want to forgive, and why it's okay to withhold forgiveness! I also offer a suggestion for what to do instead of forgiving someone, to move on and be healthy.
This book is obviously not the do-all, be-all, end-all of advice, but I don't mind saying I'm pretty proud of it and hope it helps people in some way to move forward and be happy and healthy. Thanks everyone!
