Slivers Of Life
Why do good people suffer bad things? It's a question human beings have asked since the Garden of Eden. Nobody really has a good answer--especially to the ones who are suffering. Lucinda Bassett is a name some of you may be familiar with. She's a best-selling author, a healing coach, and a fellow blogger. She's also a survivor. Three years ago she lost her husband. And if the sting of that loss wasn't deep enough, she lost her husband to suicide. There's a stigma attached to taking one's own life. A stigma that stains those left behind. Lucinda has spent years helping others overcome stress and anxiety in their lives. And she is quite adept in this field. But her husband was dealing with issues that went deeper than stress and anxiety. So deep, in fact, that he felt no hope in going on. How do the survivors regain their lives? How do they find that foothold in the world that allows them to continue forward? Lucinda Bassett has taken this tragedy and found ways of using it to help others who find themselves in this same position. You are not alone. Lucinda has written a book titled Truth Be Told that documents her struggle with her tragedy and offers ways to help others to move beyond the stigma. She's good at these sorts of things. She is, after all, a healing coach with many years of experience. There is a difference between stress and anxiety, and mental illness. Lucinda learned this by living through the most painful ordeal a person can imagine. She survived it, though, and offers a way to lead others to survival. Her new book, Truth Be Told, will be available on March 1, 2013 via Sterling Publishing. Her story alone is worth a read. But this book goes beyond simply telling a story. This book helps others heal.
