Use Your W.O.R.D.S.: Weapons Over Real-life Decisions and Situations
By: Regina Farai' Edwards
About the Book
It happened to me at an early age: the first time words changed my reality. "You're ugly." Two words I chose to believe changed the person I grew into. It took decades to heal a wound that festered into what I thought was my personality.
As I looked back, I realized I had a comforter, a friend, a cheerleader, and a defender all along—my writings. Reciting, affirming, and sharing my inner thoughts transformed me from an insecure depressed child to a confident, healthy-minded woman. Through this book, I share my actual diary entries from my twenty-plus-year journey so you can see some of the painful processes that lead to peace and progression. At the end of each chapter, I leave you with a question and some empty pages for YOUR words. My prayer is that you connect to the events of my life and find yourself somewhere in my journey.
