RALEIGH, NC, March 04, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ -- On February 22, 2022 Alana Sharps released her book "Was it My Fault?: An Abuse Survivor's Story and Guide for Navigating Narcissistic Red Flags" through Amazon and the book immediately became a Best Seller!
Alana shares about her book "I'm a survivor. For sixteen long years, I didn't believe I'd ever get to call myself that. Self-doubt, low self-esteem imposed on me by my abusive, narcissistic ex-husband, and fear held me hostage. I didn't recognize myself. Hope no longer existed. The stress and strain of just trying to live to see another day took a devastating toll on me physically, emotionally, and financially.
My life was not my own, and I was tired of it. At my core, I knew I had to fight back, but after living in such a toxic environment, I wasn't sure it would make a difference.
Thankfully, I summoned the courage. Call it dumb luck, an epiphany, or a sheer desire to shield my children from any more trauma, I left. Unfortunately, the abuse didn't end when I closed that chapter of my life. The next chapter invited a different form of abuse into my life in the form of dubious legal tactics, mean-spirited counter-parenting, battling false parental alienation claims, and harassment replaced the abuse I endured when we lived under the same roof. But, I had changed. Leaving left me feeling more empowered. Slowly, I saw my worth and understood that my freedom from my ex was what I needed to not only survive but thrive.
Was It My Fault? is my story. In it, I share intimate details of my toxic marriage, but more than that, I share my journey out of the depths of despair and how I continue to fight for myself and my children post-separation. It's my hope that my story will inspire someone who may be in a toxic relationship and feeling like they have no fight left in them to not give up and find a path forward."
Five star review on Amazon, a reader calls the book "Great read" and goes on to say "I would recommend this book for anyone, not all people realize they are in an abusive relationship and could utilize this book for context of their relationship. Alana explains the relationship so well and then list some great resources after telling her story. It's a great read for everyone."
