How to Rise Above Your Story: Because You Deserve to Love Your Life

How to Rise Above Your Story: Because You Deserve to Love Your Life

There are many podcasts, blogs, and books on well-being out there, and it can sometimes feel as though everyone else has the answers to happiness but you. How does everyone else seem to have the keys to recovering from trauma when you’ve consumed every piece of wellness advice you can get your hands on, and yet you still feel alone and small? The truth is that you’re not alone or being kept in the dark. You actually have the answers inside you; it’s just that no one has taught you how to access them yet. 

Stop Chasing Answers and Rise Above Your Story

Most of us have some type of traumatic experience in our past that continues to hold us back from our true potential. While the details of how we each experience trauma are different, our common ground is that we are suffering. We are not living to our full potential because of how our trauma informed our view of life and affected the choices we’ve made. 

I’m here to tell you it’s okay to stop chasing answers because there is a proven method to let go of your shame and rise above your story. With my Rise Above the Story formula, I’ve discovered a three-phase process that heals traumatic memory and brings lasting results. 

Step One: Acknowledge Your Story

Taking bits and pieces from the best mental health books for mental health and healing, just because they’re sitting on the self-help table, does not lead to holistic healing. You need a full strategy that begins with identifying and acknowledging the story that is holding you back. Once you do this, then you can move forward on your healing journey. 

Step Two: Untangle Your Story

Untangling your story is a messy but essential part of the healing process. The beauty is that there is no singular answer to healing, nor is there a one-size-fits-all solution. If you think everyone else has the answers except for you, you’re not alone. 

Inside my book, I’ll teach you how to heal yourself because everything you need to know is already inside you. My teachings will show you how to tap into your inner power and experience the alchemy of healing. My story contains real, actionable strategies that helped me on my journey and will help you too. 

Step Three: Rise Above & Feel Confident in Your Life 

When you rise above your story, you will be free to pursue your life, experience inner peace, and love your authentic self. 

  • Imagine feeling confident and finally trusting your instincts. 
  • Imagine feeling whole again, full of love and authentic happiness. 
  • Imagine knowing that everything you need to heal yourself and take charge of your life was inside of you the entire time. (Hello, Dorothy!)

If there is one lesson I’ve learned, it’s that once you show yourself some grace, you’ll be able to feel your full worth. The strategies I share inside my book are about more than which type of therapy works best or which of the best books for mental well-being you need to add to your personal library. Instead, my focus is empowering you to heal the trauma in your life story because not only do I know that trauma can be healed, but I know you deserve to feel worthy. 

Stop Chasing And Start Seeking

I wrote my book for anyone wanting to overcome trauma and the limiting stories we tell ourselves because of our trauma. Inside the pages of Rise Above the Story, I walk you through actionable steps that will help you move beyond your past for good. I share teachings on how the brain works and how you can change your life by practicing self-awareness and trusting your thoughts and feelings. 

I’ve been where you are, and I’ve been through trauma. I lived inside my limiting stories for too long, and since I’ve found my way through them, I knew I had to share how I did it with raw vulnerability. I know you’ll walk away from my book with tangible strategies to untangle yourself from the false narratives of being unworthy and unlovable. If there’s one thing I’ve learned through my self-healing journey, it’s that the past doesn’t define you. You do.
