I believe “I Don’t Hate Me Anymore” will change the lives of many, many women (and possibly men, but primarily women). With abuse against women so prevalent and being spoken about in the community as well as nationally, my book is one of empowering women to take back control of their lives, who’s in it and how they are treated.
It is titled “I Don’t Hate Me Anymore” and is a self-help memoir. It never started out that way, but that is how it evolved as I was writing it. My book is not an a-z of my life, but sectioned into the chapters so as to give some logical order to the process of learning to love yourself.
Over the years, I have read numerous self-help books and inspirational stories. Even though I finished the book with hope things could get better, and would, what I wasn’t able to do was take that inspiration and implement it into my life so I could see in my life what the author had in theirs. I didn’t know how or where to start. My book aims at not only inspiring women change is possible giving them hope, but it lays it out in some sort of logical order, the “how to” which I wish I had when I was 20.
“I Don’t Hate Me Anymore” can be read as an inspirational story, used like a healing journal, and/or in conjunction with counselling.
I have been in 4 domestically abusive relationships, 3 of whom I married and 1 nearly cost me my life, been sexually assaulted and bullied as a child, had friends betray me and treat me worse than my enemies, lived with mistreated and undiagnosed mental health issues, and now I want to help other women get their lives back, and teach this to high school girls, so they can be hopefully saved from years of abuse which you can never get back. I want to empower them to be strong and confident.
I believe wholeheartedly, “I Don’t Hate Me Anymore” is the book all women need.
The journey of writing my book started in 2014 and has been a very healing process. I’ve had to look at myself and be brutally honest about everything. Some of it was hard to face and acknowledge, and involved counselling to get through some parts. Today, though, I am a stronger woman who has been empowered. For a long time, I was controlled by my past, but not any longer because…..I don’t hate me anymore.
My life is my own for now and for always. I pray my book will guide you to the same place of strength, courage, empowerment, and self-commitment which I experience to this day.
