Reading: Bad Childhood Good Life

I am currently reading Bad Childhood – Good Life: How to Blossom and Thrive in Spite of an Unhappy Childhood and finding the experience incredibly liberating.

The author does not harp on the experiences that made a bad childhood but she does acknowledge them. I think that the tone of the book is right for me in this head space, giving me permission to feel what I am feeling and how I have felt about my relationship with my mother.

This is the second book that I am reading on my recovery journey, the first one that I read being: Will I Ever Be Good Enough?: Healing the Daughters of Narcissistic Mothers

And I think I just prefer the tone of Bad Childhood – Good Life. Both books are helpful and have some good advice but I definitely prefer the less autobiographical account of Bad Childhood.

I also am enjoying the no-nonsense advice. But I will let you know a final verdict later, and I am still following the recovery journey in Will I Ever Be Good Enough.
