If you struggle with self‐defeating thoughts and feelings of inadequacy, you are not alone. We’ve all felt inadequate, believing that we’re broken or otherwise unworthy. But this doesn’t have to be a life sentence. Presenting four guiding principles and five core practices based in deep spiritual wisdom, Suffering Is Optional reveals how to liberate yourself from the prison of false self‐beliefs holding you back. Millions of people feel that they are not good enough. They may struggle every day, seeing themselves as deficient, pathetic, or damaged, and destined to fail. They convince themselves they aren’t worthy of love or respect, and view themselves with self-hatred. When you believe and cling to painful, self-defeating thoughts like “I can’t do it,” “It won’t work,” or “I’m a loser,” they become your personal reality—and the more you repeat them, the more you believe them, until they come to define you. Sadly, these limiting self-definitions lead to even more pain and suffering: hidden shame, problems in relationships, opportunities lost, and a life not fully lived. In Suffering Is Optional, clinical psychologist Gail Brenner offers practical ways to discover that you are not what your thoughts tell you you are. Rather than showing you how to become a better version of yourself, this book goes straight to the heart of the problem—that you’ve mistakenly identified yourself as broken and undeserving—to guide you out of these limiting thoughts and into an investigation of the nature of reality that ultimately liberates you from your suffering. With these exercises, experiments, reflections, practices, and inspiring stories, you’ll have a spiritual solution to your personal problem of limitation and self-sabotage. Using the four guiding principles and five core practices presented in this book—including turning toward direct experience, grounding in aware presence, losing interest in thoughts, welcoming feelings, and the sacred return to presence—you’ll be able to shed your false identity and wake up to the inherent peace and happiness that is available to you in any given moment.

REVIEWS FOR SUFFERING IS OPTIONAL: “This book is a great beginning place to show you how childhood traumas can affect your adult life, and how you can choose to do something about it. Suffering is Optional: Step Out of Darkness Into the Light provides insight into the reasons people get ‘stuck’ and how implementing simple success principles can change everything.” —Jack Canfield, co-author of The Success PrinciplesTM and Chicken Soup for the Soul® “This is not just another ‘rescue’ book that promises miracles if you simply read it. Instead, it is about how to take 100% responsibility for your life and in so doing, find happiness and joy. Readers of this book will learn about a process Michelle calls the ‘Soul Shift’ which consists of specific steps, exercises and attitude changes that she developed to guide the reader into taking action to find peace and heal life long wounds. In this book, Michelle guides the reader in achieving their own INDIVIDUAL, unique ‘Soul Shift,’ giving specifics on what worked for her. Developing the ‘Soul Shift’ process took years of hard, painful work for Michelle. She had to work through a miserable childhood and the abuse (physiological, sexual, and psychological) that she experienced at the hands of family members as two failed marriages took their toll on her feelings of self worth. When you work with Michelle, life will make sense once again and you will step out of the darkness and into the light.” —Celeste R. Phillips, RN, MSN, EdD

Lined Notebook/Journal * 6x9 Inch* 108 pages* Soft Premium Matte Cover Finish* A beautifully photographed Snow monkey in Nagano, Japan.The Japanese macaque also known as the snow monkey, is a terrestrial Old World monkey species that is native to Japan. They get their name "snow monkey" because they live in areas where snow covers the ground for months each year - no other nonhuman primate is more northern-living, nor lives in a colder climate. Individuals have brown-grey fur, red faces, and short tails. Two subspecies are known.In Japan, the species is known as Nihonzaru (ニホンザル, a combination of Nihon 日本 "Japan" + saru 猿 "monkey") to distinguish it from other primates, but the Japanese macaque is very familiar in Japan, so when Japanese people simply say saru, they usually have in mind the Japanese macaque.
