About this book
For many of us, the struggle to overcome unhelpful emotions – anger, rejection, fear, unworthiness, distress, overwhelm – is a feature of daily life. But we are not our thoughts and feelings. What if, instead of being a slave to them, we could take a step back and observe them with curiosity and compassion?
Why do we self-sabotage and put our happiness and self-esteem in the hands of others? What if our negative self-beliefs and thoughts are false? Were those who criticised us or withheld love and connection from us ruled by their own fears, traumas and corrupted self-image? And would this realisation make you see yourself – and them – differently?
In his quest to understand his own suffering, coach, mentor and trainer, Martin Pring, learned how to dismantle the obstacles to happiness. Drawing on his knowledge of psychology, psychotherapy and neurolinguistics and his first-hand experience of Eastern approaches and spiritual knowledge, Martin distils his insights into highly readable and relatable form, and provides practical tools to help you break free from your pain. This book offers hope and helps you to believe that there is definitely light to be found at the end of that seemingly interminable tunnel.
Learn the root of your blocked emotions – how others have implanted their toxic beliefs and attitudes in your head – and how to gain power over your feelings so you are no longer at their mercy.
