JOURNEY TO WELLNESS - SHARING OUR STORY

"There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you." 
- Maya Angelou


Weathering Shame, a personal journey of shame and stigma, is an autobiography penned by two well respected professionals.

Kevin Mannix and Linda Rota,  husband and wife,  share with us their individual experiences from their childhood and adult lives that brought them to living with shame and stigma.   The type of shame that is deeply internalized, that can cause long-term unhappiness, discomfort, confusion, and even emotional paralysis.
 
In this book, they share their life experiences, the struggles encountered, lessons learned,  feelings of shame, and the stigma that resulted from growing up exposed to alcoholism, severe depression and suicide.
