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 and how I behaved. 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. The truth about myself, God and others has transformed my relationships and how I view the world.
I share the principles that helped me discover a new reality in a short book detailing my research and the practical principles that changed my life. 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
