A Message From Melanie
This 20-page resource began as a workshop topic for a Singles' Wellness Initiative've been working on called "Embracing Single." It then became a blog as a precursor for the workshop. I then needed a hand-out for my participants and this effort materialized into a robust workbook.
This guide is for anyone who has experienced wounding due to verbal abuse or negative messages in your past or current relationships.
This workbook provides 7 Steps that can be worked through individually, or with the help of a trusted friend or professional, to guide you through the process of healing from your word-wounds.
It would not be my intention to over-simplify the complexities of verbal abuse and imply that by simply working through these pages you will automatically heal from deep wounds. However, I hope that this would prove to be a practical tool in your healing.
Stitching up wounds are not usually a self-performed task. Most operations require the expertise of a team of professionals and caregivers, followed by nurturing support from friends and family during the healing process. I hope you reach out for help if you need it.
My prayer is that you gain insight from this workbook that will build you up and encourage you in your journey of wholeness and wellness.
Because every one counts,
Specializing in Singles' Wellness
