My second picture book will be published on Amazon.
Much of our lives are influenced by the people around us. If you are lucky enough to live with good people, happiness will be multiplied by the precious energy exchanged. However, there are far more cases in the world where we suffer from toxic people like energy vampires around us than these happy cases.
In this sense, I decided to create a book for grown-ups where people suffering from verbal and emotional abuse, by not their fault, can find their path, heal, and gain energy by escaping from a draining relationship. This book was about the story of Anna, a snail who slowly but happily finds her way. Nancy is a typical narcissistic mother, and Anna is a codependent who suffers from narcissistic relationships. Nancy considers her daughter, Anna, her trophy and has no interest in Anna's heart, pain, or happiness. Raised in such a narcissistic mother, Anna lives only for her mother's expectations and satisfaction without caring about herself. Then one day, Anna meets an incident where she has to break her shell and go out into her world alone. Can Anna, a snail abandoned on her own, eventually find her path and true happiness?
More than anything else, this book is "Will I ever be good enough? (by Karyl McBride, Ph.D.)", and the story of a narcissistic mother's pattern and her daughters suffering from it was created as a motif. With this book, I hope you will forget the hurt and pain you received from energy vampires for a while and taste the happiness of finding your true self.
