I wrote “Deep Within my Soul” because of a passion to empower you to live a life of freedom. Simply put, I want to help you release any negative, toxic emotions holding you back from moving forward. Your wellbeing is of the utmost importance. Because, if that’s not right, your physical health will suffer.
Dealing with toxic emotions won’t be an overnight process. You can’t click your fingers and all will be well. But if you’re willing to take the first step, I’ll support you along the way. I’m not saying it’s going to be easy. Every woman has a different story. Some are more complex than others, depending on what you’ve been through.
I want to be upfront with you. I’m not a relationship coach or a marriage guidance counselor. I simply want you to see the steps I took to fix my broken life. I strongly believe my painful experiences were lessons to learn from. When life looked bleak and hopeless, I clung on to hope. My faith and belief in God was my biggest optimism. In addition, I had to be there for my children.
It is possible to get to a place of peace after toxic, abusive relationships. I did, and so can you. My writing journey began on the night one of my exes made a horrific confession. It destroyed our relationship. You can read about it in “Deep Within my Soul”.
If you take away anything from my book, it should be the significance of forgiveness. I used to think forgiveness was beyond me. I struggled with the idea of forgiving someone who hurt me emotionally, physically and flung my love back in my face. As far as I was concerned, they didn’t deserve it. But, I discovered by not forgiving them, I was keeping myself a prisoner of the past. After all, forgiveness wasn’t about them, it was about me.
On top of that, my emotional state, health and spiritual well-being suffered because I clung on to unforgiveness. However, after forgiving them, together with God’s healing power, my life was transformed. It wasn’t easy and took years to fully forgive. But, it was worth it. I found freedom, at last.
“Deep Within my Soul” is from my heart to yours. This is the first in a series of books I will be writing. They will be packed with valuable nuggets to help mend your brokenness, cleanse your heart from toxic junk and guide you towards inner peace. A peace that will create contentment and freedom. Because, there is hope after abuse.
“June bares her soul and opens the reader up to realm of relationships – ‘warts and all’. The poetry is honest, gritty and full of raw emotion. It takes a long hard look at the highs and lows of love, disappointment, abuse and ultimately – forgiveness. Deep within my soul takes the reader on a spiritual journey and teaches us that the beauty of love, self-love and ultimately God’s love. An inspirational book!” Linda Okoye
