from the shadows: a journey of self-discovery and renewal
About this book
Offering hope and healing, Elizabeth invites you to witness her inspirational transformation from suicidal despair to habitual happiness, sprinkling each step with soul-stirring original poetry and journal excerpts. For decades, she hid her chronic depression from everyone, including herself, until hitting a crisis point. She seemed successful and happy to all, except her closest confidantes; they knew the anguish she wished to end by killing herself. Through self-exploration, she found a pathway to conquer the pain. In From the Shadows, she shares the questions she confronted, unearths her root causes, and presents a map out of the mire. Finally, she unlocks inner wealth by facing phantoms holding long forgotten keys to her past. Joining in her journey, you may uncover a few treasures of your own. Whirlpool of pain, despair I share. For your own gain, I bring you there. Sucked me down, but will lift you up-- The gifts uncovered, when unstuck. Maelstrom drew me time and again; Me, myself, and I weren't as friend. A shadow plagued my destiny, Before sunlit divinity. Hear my story, treasure I found. As it unfolds, soul almost drowned. Reveal my grief, the guilt and shame, unwinding as I blend my name. Listen as I share of rebirth-- meaning and passion's soulful mirth. Lure you in then lighten your load; A wealth inside worth more than gold. Precious self-love and purpose too. Join in this journey to renew.
