Q. How will this book contribute to ones emotional healing?
A. To be authentically oneself to oneself and society at large is an act of empowerment and self-esteem. Social authenticity is an enormous step toward freedom from the shadows of socially projected shame and guilt.
Being true to oneself and ones beliefs is a statement of pride and, if other members of society find who you are to be offensive, it is not about you but is a statement about them and their values. Anyone who finds it necessary to spend energy and time slandering or deprecating another needs to look within themselves, where the true problem lies.
Unfortunately, due to multiple layers of messaging during childhood and young adulthood, Carol spent her life within the shadows of shame and guilt inherited from a very narrow-minded society. Unable to be true to herself, Carol lived an isolated life, in which she was alone, angry and resentful. Her festering pain was toxic to her, her relationships and her emotional, physical and spiritual health. Being true to and finding self-worth in oneself is essential for holistic health and healing.
