Become The Best You – Guest post written by Reneé Davis (aka Mummy Tries)
There are so many self-help books out there telling you how to think, what to wear and how to behave. Qualified professionals are desperate to give you their views on any subject matter you require guidance on, so what’s special about me? I’m just a regular person. I don’t have letters after my name or a rags to riches story, so why should you bother reading my book?
I understand pain, and how to overcome it
After having an abusive childhood, and self-destructive young adulthood, I ditched my past, along with negativity and toxic influences, and created a much brighter future. Rather than just talk about my children never having to experience what I went through myself, like my parents did, I worked damn hard to ensure it was the case.
Throughout Become the Best You I share personal stories, and insights on how I overcame the many obstacles I have faced over the years. I tell you how I turned my life around, and broke the cycle of dysfunction. Getting passed my past wasn’t easy, but it wasn’t impossible.
If you can identify with this list of demons I had to conquer, this is the book for you!
– Raised by parents who had dysfunctional childhoods and subsequently had one myself
– Moved house lots and went to many schools
– Suffered bullying in several schools
– Suffered sexual abuse as a child
– Left home at a very young age after not finishing school
– Struggled with depression
– Got into a lot of debt
– Had very little self-respect
– Used to sleep around
– Abused drugs and alcohol
– Put myself into unnecessary, dangerous situations
What do I hope you will achieve by reading the book?
– The ability to make peace with your past
– The ability to look in the mirror and like what you see
– The ability to find your inner strength and start respecting yourself
– The courage to re-define the rules of relationships that have become toxic
– The courage to cut ties with people who make you miserable
– The courage to break the cycle, keep it broken and become the best you
What the book doesn’t do
– Use overly complicated words or examples that are difficult to understand
– Go into minute detail telling you exactly what to do
– Patronise you and assume that you aren’t capable of turning your life around
