To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I have thoroughly enjoyed reading Freedom Writing by Suzanne Strong. I experience a fair amount of stress in my life and have done for many years. I am so pleased to have discovered this book and have now began to implement the techniques into my life. I am excited as to how it will help me now and hopefully even more so into the future as I look back on my past and remember certain events that perhaps I don't feel ready to discuss with others but might see it as beneficial to feel like I am sharing these with others. I highly recommend this book for those who suffer from stress, anxiety, depression and any other mental illness as well as for those who are looking for a way to get in touch with their inner thoughts and emotions.
I cannot recommend this book enough. The lessons and help that I received are invaluable, the techniques used are easy to apply, but the deeply moving experience was unexpected and provided complete release from issues that were buried. This book helped me so much and the potential for it to help people coming out of trauma,or a very stressful situation is enormous. I highly recommend this book.
There's much to gain from reading this book and help to be had. What I particularly liked was the part about words and the fact that once you put a word out there, there's no taking it back. Words create reactions, realities, and can do harm but they can also do the world of good. Freedom writing is therapeutic and the best part about it is it's safe; no one has to see what you have to say for it to benefit your heart and soul. Like breathing, drinking water, and listening to soothing music, some of the best things in life are free. Add freedom writing to this list.
Writing down your problems or struggles is not a new concept, I’ve come across it many times but never actually did it. I hoped buying this book would encourage me, and it did. Myself, like many other people in the world don't feel able to talk about my feelings so writing them down instead can be therapeutic. It's a release, even if no one ever sees the writing, you have somehow helped to unburden yourself, although it took time to get to the writing exercises I did find them useful. If you haven't tried it before it may help you
I only rated one star less than 5 because I noticed a great deal of redundancy in this book. After reading half the book, I felt like she just included a whole bunch of junk testimonies and kept repeating what she'd already made pretty clear on the subject . I mean jeez, there were even a couple of times I noticed she repeated an exact same sentence or phrase as what she said on the previous page. Quite honestly, this book could have been half of the length that it is and expressed it's main points just as well. Nevertheless, I did appreciate the ideas and prompts and the emphasis she puts on the importance of this therapeutic option in her book but like I said before, it bugged me when it began to feel like I was just rereading things over and over again. Good thing is, you won't finish this book without knowing the benefits from doing writing therapy and what next steps to take to do so.
