About this Item

Paperback. 162 pages. Dimensions: 8.3in. x 5.4in. x 0.3in.A silent world is not something most children grow up in nor do most children have deaf parents and a deaf sibling as I did. Growing up with deaf parents and a deaf sister was a most unusual experience to say the least. Surviving the silence of the deaf world and surviving the silence of sexual abuse was like mountain climbing without boots or skiing without skis. At worst, it was a life filled with what seemed insurmountable obstacles and depression. At best, it taught me determination, strength, the need for self-actualization and finally the survival of my soul. Caregivers are a special breed. Most are thrust into scenarios that feel unending. And, when they do end, the pent up emotions can linger in the baggage of the psyche. This book was written for anyone including children of deaf adults, caregivers, victims of any sort, gay, straight, and anyone who has felt different or alienated from their true self. When I was recovering from my years of care giving, victimization, and self-actualization, I read as many success stories as possible. These successful life stories helped build the courage, self-respect, and ultimate survival tools I needed to overcome what life had dealt. It is my hope that reading this book will inspire all who read it to be honest with themselves, and strive for an authentic life filled with love, peace, and self-respect. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Bookseller Inventory # 9781589097476

About this title

Synopsis:

A silent world is not something most children grow up in nor do most children have deaf parents and a deaf sibling as I did. Growing up with deaf parents and a deaf sister was a most unusual experience to say the least. Surviving the silence of the deaf world and surviving the silence of sexual abuse was like mountain climbing without boots or skiing without skis. At worst, it was a life filled with what seemed insurmountable obstacles and depression. At best, it taught me determination, strength, the need for self-actualization and finally the survival of my soul. Caregivers are a special breed. Most are thrust into scenarios that feel unending. And, when they do end, the pent up emotions can linger in the baggage of the psyche. This book was written for anyone including children of deaf adults, caregivers, victims of any sort, gay, straight, and anyone who has felt different or alienated from their true self. When I was 'recovering' from my years of care giving, victimization, and self-actualization, I read as many success stories as possible. These successful life stories helped build the courage, self-respect, and ultimate survival tools I needed to overcome what life had dealt. It is my hope that reading this book will inspire all who read it to be honest with themselves, and strive for an authentic life filled with love, peace, and self-respect.
