I wish to inspire those wounded by life to take their first step towards a positive future. I chronicle my life’s journey when alcoholism, divorce papers and sudden death shattered the path. The end of a marriage when my husband died in front of me and our two children. This book offers help or inspiration for you or someone you know well; a friend or family member. It is beneficial for all distress or trauma. Some may choose to consider: 1. Is an alcoholic ruining my life? 2. Does divorce loom ahead? 3. Has my reaction to grief challenged or surprised me? 4. Could it finally be time to just’ let it go?’ Others can find a nugget of information which may encourage the first step to resolution of a distress or trauma. I share resources to aid Emotional Healing with explanation of emotive terminology and emotive situations, plus interviews with others now thriving after a variety of trauma. I offer Bonuses relating to my work as an Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) and Matrix Reimprinting practitioner . We all have choice in how we live our life. Eventually I chose: quote ‘It was him or me going to the ‘nut house’. I chose for it not to be me.’ All the contributors give a positive message. We wish you to move forward in your life. It may need a small tweak, or substantial transformation. I wish you success and joy.’ Let it go.’

A great book about one person's personal experience of trauma. It is shared in a way that allows you scope to feel almost a part of the story.
Whether you are a therapist or someone suffering from trauma, you will find plenty to interest you in this book.
A good read. A positive and honest account when living with considerable emotional distress.
Well done for writing your book, getting it finished and sharing your own blunt and sometimes less than perfect internal thoughts and feelings.
Susan has made an excellent contribution to anyone who wishes to transform their own life after trauma.
