"Love Yourself & Reclaim Your LIfe: Breaking the Chains of Dysfunctional Mothering" is one woman’s journey of facing the consequences of growing up in an emotionally empty household. From hiding in her brother’s shadows to taking responsibility for the family’s breakdown, she had to face her formed inner belief of worthlessness to start the healing process. Through the birth of her first child, she stopped beating herself up to start learning how to re-parent herself so that she could responsibly parent her child. Then came marriage which opened up the well of internal shame; her defense mechanism was to shut down and push love away. To clean out the lies, limiting beliefs, trauma and unresolved emotions that held her back from being able to love and be loved in return, she choose to honor her feelings and release the emotional grief energy that had enveloped her. Through the unconditional support and acceptance of her husband, she was able to build trust, resiliency and forgiveness of self. Happiness was now within her grasp; all she had to do was choose it for herself everyday, in every way. She wrote a workbook, called " Wound to Wellbeing" organizing all the lessons she learnt to be able to take responsibility for her experience and gain her life back.You can access this workbook on Marla Hickerson's profile.

About the Author
Life is for the living. We all experience love, pain, success, and failure. Often times though, we struggle as the negative experiences have had lasting effects on our lives. We carry around baggage and all too often lose sight of how to let go of the negative. Some of us are less fortunate than others. The effects of feeling unsupported can last from childhood into our adult lives. We can find ourselves struggling under the weight of a limiting weakness or restriction; and have come to terms that life will always be a roller coaster of emotional living. And we cope by distracting ourselves from attaining well-being. The fact of the matter is that it’s never too late nor impossible to move from wound to well-being. You matter. Your health matters. Your life matters. Freedom and empowerment lies in the release of that which doesn't serve you to embrace that which will.
