Connect How to Love and Accept Yourself After Divorce By Dawn Burnett. Transformational and Wellness Expert Dawn Burnett has an impressive track record for helping people heal their pasts so they can transform from victim to victor. Like all of us, however, she has had a life filled with trials. The child of divorced parents and a survivor of abuse, she was in a toxic marriage that nearly took her life. These events, and the discovery that thought patterns and experiences are linked to health conditions which were revealed during her studies as an alternative medical practitioner-led her to a wake-up call. She left everything she knew, took her two kids, dog and belongings and drove seven states across the country for a fresh start, a beautiful journey of accepting and loving self. Along the way, she charted a course to ultimate transformation and wellness on a path filled with valuable insight on personal relationships.
She recognized that becoming trapped by the toxic emotions of our past can weigh down our spirit and sabotage any chance we have at happiness today or in the future. The result is Connect, a powerful book that provides effective ways to address key issues facing serious relationships. Filled with her personal triumphant story, and nine contributing authors, it reveals the destructive patterns we create in relationships; the many ways we unintentionally sabotage our relationships and why we find ourselves settling for less than what we deserve. The solution is an empowering plan reader can implement themselves to heal their own hearts, fulfill their dreams, and find meaningful and lasting bonds with self and others. An opportunity for readers to finally connect to what they say they want without compromising their authentic self; an opportunity to live their truth so they can thrive instead of cry.
My Opinion: I am learning from this book as I seem to have destructive patterns and really need to change that so I can have healthier relationships. I came out reflecting and learning how to compromise again.
