You know you don’t want to just play it safe for the rest of your life, but how do you trust again after being betrayed? Is there any hope for shedding those fear-based, paralyzing reactions that keep you from engaging with life and love? Melissa Gopp uses her experiences from a traumatic divorce and her path to healing to help her readers explore how to:
- Recognize the difference between trauma and intuition
- Examine the ways you may be inviting betrayal into your life
- Stop unhealthy coping mechanisms like obsessive thoughts and snooping
- Shift your focus to yourself, your healing work, and your current reality
- Have the confidence to trust yourself
Whether you’ve experienced betrayal in romantic relationships or as a result of childhood family dynamics, Melissa’s stories are intended to help you take a closer look at the patterns that keep playing out in your relationships, learn to make different choices, and start thriving in life and love.
