In Emotional Emancipation, Dr. Dee Carroll shares ways to reinvent yourself no matter what you’ve been through
Many people are walking around in a continuous state of pain and disappointment. When asked to identify the source of that pain, they may cite despair over the lack of civility in American politics, the ugliness of racism, the prevalence of police shootings of unarmed black men or the separation of asylum-seeking illegal immigrants from their children. Or, it might be a more personal blow such as a divorce, job loss or death in the family.
While Dee Carroll, Ph.D., identifies with individuals who are hurting and complaining, she wants to inspire them to display conviction, courage and confidence to get beyond it all. That is what her new book, “Emotional Emancipation: Step Into Your Freedom, Reinvent Your Challenges and Move Beyond,” is all about.
Own the fear and don’t allow it to own you
Move beyond the agony to bounce back and make a positive contribution
“No matter how bad things get, you can still grow, reinvent from pain and anxiety and start over,” Carroll says. “Challenges are an opportunity to imagine a new future, create a positive life for yourself and pay it forward to help others who are struggling.”
