The Gift: Edith Eger

Written by on September 26, 2020 in Book Club, Self Help

A great story that gives you keys to unlock our mental prisons. Book deals with how to deal with victimhood, self neglect, guilt and shame, unresolved grief, rigidity, resentment, paralysing fear, judgement, hopelessness, not forgiving. Edith tells us story of how she overcame or dealt with most of these emotions and situations. After each chapter there are keys to deal with these traps of the mind. Very liberating once you realise where you are stuck and some practical ways of dealing with it.

This practical and inspirational guide to healing from the bestselling author of The Choice shows us how to release your self-limiting beliefs and embrace your potential. The prison is in your mind. The key is in your pocket.In the end, it’s not what happens to us that matters most – it’s what we choose to do with it. We all face suffering – sadness, loss, despair, fear, anxiety, failure. But we also have a choice; to give in and give up in the face of trauma or difficulties, or to live every moment as a gift. Celebrated therapist and Holocaust survivor, Dr Edith Eger, provides a hands-on guide that gently encourages us to change the imprisoning thoughts and destructive behaviours that may be holding us back. Accompanied by stories from Eger’s own life and the lives of her patients her empowering lessons help you to see your darkest moments as your greatest teachers and find freedom through the strength that lies within.
