About the Book:
Women who have been entangled in the female hybrid traps quickly discover their personal effectiveness and productivity diminishes as they live unbalanced, unfulfilled, stressed, unhappy and purposeless lives marred by an inability to fully realize their inherent potential and freely be the women God created them to be. More often than not, they become prone to addictive, compulsive or impulsive behaviours, which in turn make all their efforts at succeeding in life counterproductive. While they may experience spurts of accomplishment, real, lasting success eludes those who deviate from the path God has set out for them. Overcoming Emotional Baggage is a must read for the modern woman of today who wants to be free of the emotional entanglements of life-freeing her to live as the woman she was created to be. Once this has been achieved, she will be free to embark on a life of true contentment, inner peace, meaning and lasting success.
