About this title

Synopsis:

What if, as a young married woman, you discovered the outrageous truth that vital life skills of survival and interaction that you should have learned as a child were so chaotically distorted and convoluted that you had no grasp how to trust or love anyone or anything! Imagine feeling so exposed that you would do anything to stay hidden.

Follow this true-life journey through dangerous waters of gut-wrenching falsehoods, close-call survivals, and my long, slow climb to truth, integrity, and vulnerability. Divine consciousness led me home.

The voice of this book peels away the flesh to get to the marrow of the emotional work it takes to be free, no matter what!

From the Back Cover:

For me, a far more difficult task lay before me than just financial struggles. I was finally surrendering to the realization that the tools of survival I had depended on during my life were learned in the haze and distortion of my family's alcoholic history and environment.
No words can describe how debilitating the levels of distortion can be in the alcoholic haze of what is perceived as truth. The distortion leaves no room for reality or a reality check. It was as if everyone in my family had somehow believed that two plus two equals five, and it wasn't until I got into real-life situations and difficulties that I realized these beliefs had to be torn apart, one by one. I didn't know which ones were not true. I continued to do the same things over and over that I had learned growing up, but I always hoped for a better result. The distortion was mine, and I had to learn my way out of the chaotic, insane nontruths that I had learned in my childhood.
There were many dark days during these years of process and even darker nights. At times, I wondered if I would ever make it through the tunnels. The transformations did come though, slowly and one by one. I also learned to laugh more authentically. Finding joy in very simple, brief moments became essential, and I learned to hold onto those moments just because they felt so good.
My drinking addiction was still bigger than me, and I didn't have the fortitude to attempt dealing with that monster yet.
