From a leading voice on recovering from toxic relationships, a deeply insightful guide to getting back to your "old self" again--in order to truly heal and move on.
Jackson MacKenzie has helped millions of people in their struggle to understand the experience of toxic relationships. His first book, Psychopath Free, explained how to identify and survive the immediate situation. In this highly anticipated new book, he guides readers on what to do next--how to fully heal from abuse in order to find love and acceptance for the self and others.
Through his close work with--and deep connection to--thousands of survivors of abusive relationships Jackson discovered that most survivors have symptoms of trauma long after the relationship is over. These range from feelings of numbness and emptiness to depression, perfectionism, substance abuse, and many more. But he’s also found that it is possible to work through these symptoms and find love on the other side, and this book shows how. Through a practice of mindfulness, introspection, and exercises using specific tools, readers learn to identify the protective self they've developed - and uncover the core self, so that they can finally move on to live a full and authentic life--to once again feel light, free, and whole, and ready to love again.
This book addresses and provides crucial guidance on topics and conditions like: complex PTSD, Narcissistic abuse, Avoidant Personality Disorder, Codependency, Core wounding, toxic shame, Borderline Personality Disorder, and so many more.
Whole Again offers hope and multiple strategies to anyone who has survived a toxic relationship, as well as anyone suffering the effects of a breakup involving lying, cheating and other forms of abuse--to release old wounds and safely let the love back inside where it belongs.
Customer ReviewsSee All
My parents have been emotionally abusing me for years. I’m 20 years old. They’ve convinced themselves that my depression is my problem and deflect all their criticisms onto me. They control everything about me. Whenever a therapist says they’re the problem, they cut them off from me. I’ve lost friends because they’ve taken them away once I told them what was going on. They closely monitor my texts, my internet. They’ve disabled apps on my phone. I rarely get to be by myself throughout the day. They made decicions about college without me. They’ve prevented me from getting a job and learning how to drive. I don’t know how, but someone please help. I’m at the end of my rope. I don’t want to live here anymore but don’t know what to do.
