A light for me in a dark place, when others had gone outReviewed in the United States on 2 September 2020
Roberta's story came to me a time when I needed it dearly, though I didn't know it at the time. The Shoulding reminded me that I am not alone, that we can be stronger than we think, and that perseverance can come in many forms. It is a fairly easy read, and a very important message. Empowering and enlightening, the author reaches into your heart and stokes the coals that set your soul ablaze once more.
Excellent!!Reviewed in the United States on 9 September 2020
Very talented writer. Roberta was able to bring you into her story, feel her pain, and the life long trauma her family caused. Her fight everyday to overcome, is so inspiring. Wonderful writing. So much of her story had moments I could relate to. Her courage, strength, and drive to overcome one step at a time, is uplifting and inspiring. She is an amazing woman. Keep writing!!
Inspirationally authenticReviewed in the United States on 10 September 2020
Roberta Brown appears to be from a normal suburban family growing up in the 1960s, but not all is well with this seemingly perfect family. In chosen accounts throughout her childhood and into adulthood, Roberta chronicles events that seemed to be a part of her life, that she "should" accept as normal; we now understand them as symptoms of abuse. A quick read that includes moments of darkness and humor, Roberta shares her story in hopes to help others who have experienced or seen the same things, but also gives hope that life can be turned around.
Breathtakingly authentic and honest - InspirationalReviewed in the United States on 17 July 2016
This new book by Roberta Brown is breathtakingly authentic and honest. She describes how she spent many years driven by the power of SHOULD--doing what she thought she should do to please narcissistic family and romantic partners--and the negative effects that had on her. She writes about very difficult and very personal things, and still manages explain the situations and many, many examples of abuse without pointing fingers of blame. She describes how she thought that her experience was what all families were like behind closed doors in a way that is almost heart-breaking. Roberta came to a place where she recognized and owned the SHOULDS, and she brings a mindfulness to them that allowed her to climb out of the pit of narcissism and abuse that shaped her life for so many years. Reading this, you can't help but feel empathy for what she has experienced, and elation that she managed to grow to a healthy place. Roberta writes in a style that is very easy to read. The book went by quickly for me--I couldn't put it down once I had started. I wanted to know what else happened, and what happened next, and how she dealt with these things she experienced. I was engrossed the whole time. Highly recommended; especially for people wrestling with relationships that just don't feel right, and for people searching for what healthy relationships ought to be.
