Conquering Shame: Surviving to Thriving is available online at Amazon.

Are you successful but inwardly feel like an imposter? Are you struggling with anxiety, depression, addiction, low self-esteem, worthlessness, perfectionism, self-sabotage, codependency, need for validation, intimacy issues, or suicidal ideation? Or have you been impacted by poverty, mental illness, secrets, bullying, abuse, neglect, sex, sexuality, religion, or abandonment at some point in your lifetime?

If any of this sounds familiar, you may be experiencing the damaging effects of shame that is trapped and stored within your body yearning for liberation.

In this compelling book, Monica Gullotta courageously shares her journey with a shame that was hidden within her for decades like an emotional cancer eating away at the quality of her life. Her gripping stories demonstrate how shame is a learned behavior resulting from abuse, neglect, and other environments where a child’s needs are not met in a significant way, which can cause devastating and debilitating effects. This poignant book will define shame, shame-based victimization, shame-based triggers, shame-based thinking, and how a shame-based identity becomes solidified. It explores the causes and effects of shame, emphasizes the importance of a self-help model, the importance of reparenting oneself, and becoming your own therapist by employing acceptance, forgiveness, compassion, and self-love, which are the cornerstone of recovery.

Conquering Shame: Surviving to Thriving is a road map that provides a wealth of information, including heartfelt stories capturing how shame becomes cultivated, discussion points following each chapter, a questionnaire, techniques, letter writing, and an introduction to Developmental and Recovery Stages of Shame, that are integral for healing from shame.

What if anxiety and depression are actual messengers working for our highest good?

Monica Gullotta, M.S., will take you on a magnificent journey as she explores the faulty assumptions we have about anxiety and depression. She will challenge you to rethink your viewpoint as she shares the personal success stories of herself and others who have chosen to reconsider and reevaluate their beliefs about mental health.
