Own Your Life

HOW OUR WOUNDS BECOME OUR GIFTS
By Lise Porter

For everyone who’s ever wanted their life to be different but feels like they’re stuck in gear, Own Your Life explores how we can leverage adversity and move from crisis, challenge, or loss to a place of thriving in our lives.

In Own Your Life, Lise Porter, a licensed psychotherapist and survivor of her mother’s suicide, passionately asserts that when we fully own the ups and downs of our lives, our personal wounds actually become gifts that serve us and the world at large. Through thirty-five short narratives all dealing with specific themes and tools pertaining to transformation, Porter debunks stigmas associated with grief, loss, and trauma and shares insights that inform, inspire, and soothe- providing readers hope and teaching them how to metabolize adversity so they can tolerate, integrate, and transcend those experiences.
