If I could take a before and after picture of my life, it would look like the following:
Before my life was transformed, I was an angry, anxious, sad, and insecure person. I was emotionally unpredictable and upset about something most of the time. I desired to love others well from a pure heart. My journey to loving well began over 20 years ago. After years of Bible studies, counseling, reading self-help books, and trying their principles, I was still that same angry, anxious, sad, and insecure person. My breakthrough came at a workplace relations seminar. A participant shared a problem she was having with a co-worker. The speaker said that her co-worker might have unresolved childhood issues. This answer intrigued me, as it may intrigue you.
I researched how and why unresolved negative issues affect our thinking, feelings, and behavior. During my research, I discovered I had many unresolved childhood memories that affected my health and behavioral choices. My painful memories created unhealthy beliefs that controlled my feelings. Our memories influence how we think, feel, believe, and behave. After applying the transforming principles I share on this website, I now experience love, joy, peace, and more. My new reality is based on the truth that has transformed my relationships and how I view the world. So, I wrote a short book detailing my research and the practical principles that changed my life. I share this book on this website. Please join me on my transformation journey to discover a new reality for your life by starting here: 1–Healing Begins by Transforming Painful Memories
Hope For Complete Healing
