After reading this book I felt like 'where have you been all my life?' It has given me the one thing I haven't had in years...hope. I have felt different and defective my whole life. Reading this book made me understand that I am normal just wired differently than other people. WHAT A RELIEF! Know that you are not alone and we can recover.

When I used to look back on my childhood, there seemed to be a lot of things that didn't make sense. Confusion reigned, I knew the events had to impact me, but I couldn't see very clearly exactly how. After reading this book, I can look back and see a clear path from then to the person I am today. It was the most enlightening book I've read out of several. One important note: your parent(s) don't have to be an alcoholic for decades to impact you--just having a heavy period of alcoholism can have the same effect on you. Also, alcoholism doesn't even need be present at all--a mentally ill parent creates the same confusing, illogical, inflamatory household as an alcoholic parent can. This book helps you to know who you are, and why you are who you are.

This was not a subject that had ever even entered into my brain for me, this subject was recommend for me, and this was the first book that I found on the subject. I thought it was very informative with great every day examples that made all of her points valid. I couldn't put it down once I started reading. I believe that if I read it multiple times I'd get new insight each time. I have let several people borrow it and each of them has given me positive feedback. I would greatly recommend this book, it is easy and clear, while being very informative.

This is a fantastic book for those who have been through a tough time in their past. This book has described some sense what as a child have been through, everyone is different but all have a common thing!

What your parents did in the past is over and done with. You cannot go back and change the past, but you can learn why this happened to you and grow out of it. See Louise Hay's books to help you along the way of self discovery and growth. Be the person you want to be and learn how. Change your thoughts, thats all it takes!
