Owning My Truth (Paperback)
Have you ever felt like there is something you could never tell anyone about? Something you strive to look away from, wish would disappear, or solve itself? But all the while knowing that you can't really look away?
You are not alone. Too many people are letting pain eat them up inside. Why? Because they are too afraid of speaking their truth for fear of judgment, reprisal, or ridicule.
Anna-Maria Angarita never shared her truth and lived a lie for forty-six years. Her secret controlled her and prevented her from ever knowing her true self. Now she knows that she had no reason to feel ashamed.
Tired of feeling lost, Anna-Maria decided to quit abandoning herself and to abandon her pain instead. She stopped pleasing and started living. This began by finding her family.
In her debut memoir, Anna-Maria Angarita shares her own journey as a woman coming to terms with a traumatic childhood tainted by pain and abuse. By finally owning her truth, Anna-Maria let her true self shine through, and is now able to point the way out for all those who suffer as she once did.
A page-turning memoir of pain, loss, self-actualization, and survival. You will not be able to put it down.
