2008 Faves📚

These are the books I read while trying to overcome "people pleasing" mom shaming, coping as a trucker wife in a long distance marriage after my emotional abandonment wound was triggered, I lose my sense of self/identity crisis and I started struggling with emotional binge eating. These books help me understand and deal with my limited beliefs, negative thoughts, and pains, hurts, and disappointments in my life at the time as well as my long distance marriage.
