Freeing the Tiger Within
This book is for anyone who has ever felt trapped, stuck, given away their power, suffers from low self-esteem, or finds it hard to say no.
It is the story of the Author’s life-long search for love and acceptance in all the wrong places, joining a religious cult at age the age of fifteen, followed by two abusive relationships. However through all of this she eventually came to realise that the cage she was imprisoned in was one of her own construction. The good news was that she alone held the keys to her freedom. Her story points the way out of the traps of cycles of abuse, victimhood, destructive habits and thought patterns inherent in so many people who just want to be loved and accepted.
The reader is taken on a journey of self-discovery so they can free their own inner tiger, identifying their self-imposed cage and the bars that keep them imprisoned, such as:
- COMPLACENCY AND APATHY
- THE CYCLE OF ABUSE AND VICTIMHOOD
- DESTRUCTIVE HABITS AND THOUGHT PATTERNS
- CO-DEPENDENCY AND ENABLING
- DEPRESSION AND ANXIETY
- LOW SELF-ESTEEM AND SELF-DOUBT
About the Author
Christina (not her real name) is a typical Australian woman, raised by loving, middle-class Christian parents, however her story is anything but typical. Despite her Christian upbringing, her longing for a deeper spiritual connection and unconditional love caused her to make questionable life decisions throughout her search.
My reason for writing this book is not for self-promotion or money, but hopefully to empower other women (and men) who want to free themselves as I did. I just wish I had read something like this when I was young… I would have made very different decisions!
