Hiding In Plain Sight No-more

Have you felt as though you live in the shadows of others, unable to stand in a light of your own? Always need to give to others yet can’t receive for yourself, alone? Spend much of your time uplifting others, setting them apart and forgetting that you too need to shine, to do your part.

If you identify with any of these and have found yourself inadvertently ‘Hidden in Plain sight’ maybe even had your gifts squandered and your presence invalidated, discounted and ignored, then this book is for you.

Coming out of the shadows and into her light, Sherine knows how easy it is, for even the smarted of women, to overshadowed by another’s light. This book is an unconventional love story where an adult falls in love with her younger self, and through the filter of understanding and compassion, the old script is rewritten so a new self can emerge.

Here we learn that to truly heal we must let go of the past we would have wished for and acknowledge the one we had. This is the only way we can own these powerful experiences we had and harness the learning to become ourselves fully.

 

THE INVISIBLE GIRL

You can read my full story here, from when I was ten years old and what happened to me. I was admitted to a psychiatric unit at fifteen and continued to suffer throughout my adult life with feelings of self-hatred, fear, darkness and not knowing who I was. I used addictions to help me to cope on the outside when the inside was chaotic. I finally found my healing and had a burning desire to share this with the universe to give love, hope and inspiration to others in pain.

Don’t tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass

Anton Chekhov
