Broken Like Me, An Insider’s Toolkit for Mending Broken People

Broken Like Me, An Insider's Toolkit for Mending Broken People

This is the part of the book where I’m supposed to convince you that reading this book is worthwhile. I wish I didn’t have to. I wish I never had to write it. I wish my best friend hadn’t killed himself. But brokenness exists. And, my friend did kill himself.

I go through most days feeling broken and having thoughts of suicide. So, here’s my book to you. I didn’t write it to make a lot of money, but out of a need to survive. It is born out of my story. I write about things in this book that made life easier, and at times, probably kept me alive. No one should have to wait to tell their story until they have everything figured out, and that’s what I’m trying to make sure you don’t have to do. Here are some things I’d like you to think about as you consider reading this book.

Do you:

•Feel like you have to pretend you’re not broken, and pray that your struggle doesn’t get passed on to your kids?

•Feel overwhelmed with inadequate boundaries and need help knowing where to draw the line with people?

•Get those check-in sheets every time you go to your therapist and can’t make sense out of the scale you’re using?

•Feel lost between faith and sanity, success and failure, hope and helplessness?

If you feel broken, I wrote this for you. $0.99 on Kindle.

The Constructive Solution: A Sufferer’s Guide to Beating Depression & Anxiety

The Constructive Solution: A Sufferer's Guide to Beating Depression & Anxiety* Why our thoughts go wrong so often
* What we can do to put them right
* How we ensure they then remain constructive

The comparisons we make, the expectations we form and our search for purpose in life are all innate psychological processes, vital to our everyday existence. But they also lie behind many of the mental health struggles we experience. Hidden in plain sight, they explain why we feel inferior, perpetually disappointed, intensely jealous, deeply fearful of failure, seriously lacking in motivation and so on.

The answer is not to deny these three processes, but to understand their rightful purposes and reset them accordingly: to ensure they work for rather than against us. This book will show you how. Rather than ‘delving into the past’, ‘being positive’ or ‘letting go of destructive thoughts’, it presents a constructive programme for change in our thoughts and deeds. A series of credible, actionable and insightful suggestions that offer a route to a mentally stronger and healthier version of ourselves.

‘The Constructive Solution’ represents my conclusions from decades of living with depression and anxiety as well as many years of mental health study. $2.99 on Kindle.
