FROM MIS­ERY TO MAS­TERY BY RUTH CYS­TER-STUETTGEN

Lift Magazine - - Book Reviews -

WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THIS BOOK?

I was in­tro­duced to Ruth by a busi­ness coach friend. Af­ter re­cov­er­ing from do­mes­tic violence, Ruth now helps other women find their own free­dom in life as well as busi­ness.

WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

It’s a com­bi­na­tion of Ruth’s jour­ney to free her­self from do­mes­tic violence as well as prac­ti­cal strate­gies to do the same for your­self, al­though there’s so much in it for any sin­gle mum in­clud­ing chap­ters on for­give­ness, tak­ing con­trol of your emo­tions, heal­ing, be­com­ing self-aware and find­ing the sup­port you need to make mean­ing­ful change in your life.

HOW LONG DID IT TAKE YOU TO READ?

It only took a couple of nights to read, al­though I’ve read back through the chap­ters again to take notes.

WOULD YOU REC­OM­MEND IT? WHY OR WHY NOT?

If you’ve ex­pe­ri­enced do­mes­tic violence, this is a great re­source to know that you’re not alone and that life really can change. Even if you’ve haven’t ex­pe­ri­enced abuse, there’s still a lot to be learned from Ruth’s wis­dom along the way. My favourite was the chap­ter on tak­ing con­trol of your life. An em­pow­er­ing read for any­one feel­ing stuck in their cur­rent life sit­u­a­tion.
