When I began my healing journey I felt a great weight being lifted off of my tired shoulders. Simply being able to tell, gave me strength. With this strength began my quest for knowledge .
I began here on the Internet, and soon I gathered up the nerve to walk into a bookstore and purchase a book,The Courage To Heal As I walked up to the counter and handed this book to the cashier, panic struck. I couldn't look up...I did not want to make eye contact...The words, "She knows..she knows...she knows" went racing in my head. The shame, the embarrassment, the humiliation was quite evident by my facial expression, and body language. I fumbled in my purse handed her cash, (a credit card would make this transaction even more unbearable) grabbed my change and my purchase, and quickly headed out the door. Air!...I could breath again. You see I needed to read The Courage To Heal before I could have the courage to buy it.
So now by modern technology I can purchase my books from home. I can browse without looking behind my back, receive great discounts, and continue to learn and grow.
I have recently been purchasing my books through Amazon.com and am satisfied with the easy access and great service. (And no chasing my kids up and down the bookstore isle!)
I have provided some recommendations for books and links to various topics if you are interested in purchasing books on line.
