Regaining Control: When Love Becomes a Prison

Capa
Loving Healing Press, 01/01/2007 - 120 páginas
Only 1% of the world's assets are held in the name of women. 70% of people in abject povertyliving on less than $1 per dayare women. Over half the women of this generation do not themselves receive, from either employment or the state, enough to 'get by'.

These shocking statistics call to our attention the importance of financial independence among women. Financial dependence, though, is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg. Dependence can also be noted in Validation and Self Esteem; Mobility and Daily Care; and Emotional Support and A Shield from the World.

Loving, caring, and well meaning spouses, families, and caregivers can unwittingly gnaw away at self confidence and self esteem until a person is trapped in an unhealthy situation.

Are you at risk?
Would you be financially secure without your spouse's income? Do you find it hard to say "No"? Do you feel unlovable or ugly? Have you given up on your dreams? Are you truly unhappy with your life?

If so, there is hope! It is possible to regain your self esteem, rebuild your self confidence, and become independent once more.

Independence is a skill, an attitude, and a lifestyle that anyone can achieve.

Praise for Tami Brady:

"The main point I saw in this work, and one I thought was outstanding, is that we are all individuals, unique and that one set formula may not work for everyone. I believe that is what makes her work different than other self-help books." -Shirley Johnson, Midwest Book Review

"I found myself submersed in this book, discovering it a true source of encouragement, that however overwhelming life becomes, we should stay aware of what we want, never forgetting where we come from or what our dreams are." -Tracy Jane-Newton, An Alternative View

"If you have been thinking there must be more to life than what you have; or you find you tend to say one thing in public, whilst being of an-other opinion in private, then this book may be for you." -Sue Phillips, Spiralthreads Reviews
