This story is for you.
There is always hope. There is always a way out of the destructive cycle. Your exit plan and your new life begin with understanding what you went through, maybe are still going through, and how you ended up here.
Come along with Marci and take this journey as she takes the long view back over her life to excavate her past, dig out memories and phantoms from the depths of time, and see how she learns to fit the pieces together to make sense of her life, her choices, and her heart.
In this emotionally vulnerable book, Marci Brockmann reveals how growing up under the strain of mental abuse was mirrored in her subsequent personal relationships. She didn’t know anything different. After repeated mistakes and huge anguish over her mother’s opiate addiction and mental illness, she learned to embrace her own power and took control of her life. She learned that by living her truth, she would always be free!
With empathy and transparency, she tells a story that is at once typical and burdened by toxicity. She tells how she discovered who she is, and how amazing life and love can truly be when you give yourself PERMISSION TO LAND.
