A few months ago I received Downside Up by Tracey Mitchell to review for Booksneeze. I was excited about reading it because I thought it would help me learn how to deal with rejections I have experienced in my business but I quickly discovered that this book focused on personal rejections that we experience in life and how they can affect relationships which in turn can affect all of life.
I have always struggled with insecurity and even though I have learned to deal with this, reading this book helped me to understand more about WHY I felt the way I did and some ideas I can use when those ugly feelings start to come up again. It also helped me to understand why some of the people in my life are the way they are and how I can better deal with them. Like my momma always said “Hurting people hurt people.” When I figure out WHY these people are hurting, I can relate to them and help them. Tracey Mitchell digs deep and shows that through God, we can take the rejection we experience and use it to grow and learn. That is exactly what I am doing.
I enjoyed this book so much that I gave away a copy on my blog and plan on having an online book study of it starting in January. If you are interested in joining, simply fill out the Contact Me form and be sure to note that you want to join the book club.
