I felt that the richest part of the book was identifying and staying focused on my most essential values and then learning how to access them, while I am in the initial throws of an intense feeling episode. Recently, I successfully stopped myself from snapping back at my friend when she insinuated that I had been very careless. I gently reminded myself about my wish to be kind to others and found that our conversation went so much better than I’d ever hoped it would. I will refer frequently to this book because it has so many thoughtful strategies and exercises to help me choose how I want to be in my life, even when it may seem to be elusive.
And finally, I have to say that Dr. Zurita Ona has an engaging writing style that is playful, honest and direct. She chooses words and phrases like “cranky town” and “isolation city,” that lightens the intensity of the subject matter, while illuminating her assertions. I finished the book with the realization that there is a lot of hope for people who lose emotional control in the intensity of the moment.
If you want a book that offers a guiding light on how to choose to live your life in alignment with your most important values, rather than potentially destructive emotions, read…better yet, keep Escaping the Emotional Roller Coaster by your bedside!
he section on Me and My Inner Voice has my name written all over it and it's my fav.
If you've been looking for the perfect self-help book that isn't difficult to read and you can put it to use right away, *this* is the one to buy.
While reading the book I hoped there would be an easy to use summary. Lo and behold, there it was near the end. Many self-help books teach how to do stuff but few have a portable, convenient summary. Bravo Dr. Z
