Summary

The Strength in Our Scars is Bianca Sparacino's reminder to you: No matter what you're going through, no matter where you are on your healing journey - you are strong.

Through poetry, prose, and the compassionate encouragement you would expect from someone who knows exactly what you're working through, Sparacino is here with the words you need. The Strength in Our Scars tackles the gut-wrenching but relatable experiences of moving on, self-love, and ultimately learning to heal. In this book you will find peace, you will find a rock, you will find understanding, and you will find hope.  

Remember: Whatever is dark within you has also carved light into your soul. Whatever is lost within you has also brought you back home to yourself. Whatever is hurt within you is also healing you in ways you may not understand at that moment in time. This book hopes to show you that.

Disappointing

Liked the general wisdom.

Disliked repetition, same phraseology, as well as concepts, over and over ad nauseam. Wisdom now a days seems dished out like ice cream, so much so that it can be dismissive as well as misleading of the time and work of true growth. Were wisdom concepts as easy as writing about them, we would meet a lot of wise, mentally healthy, robust and flourishing people every day.

Working with people who have experienced crises, I know it can take decades to grow enough to be motivated more by love than fear, or to flourish post traumatically.

Too superficial a treatment of the human condition for me.

Great for going through hard times

The listen was very good. she's trying to comfort and encourage after a hard breakup but can help after losing a loved one as well. Rachel Jacobs read slowly but I think she did so intentionally to help emphasize the material, and in that she did a very good job. unfortunately if you try to speed up just a bit it gets very choppy. very recommended though esp if trying to cope with difficult times.

This was just perfect for my specific pain.

It was almost eerie, feeling like this was written for me, and she was talking to me the whole time. Grateful for this work. It was affirming and felt like a therapy session.

Perfect Timing

Listen to this book if you are going through the heartache of a break up or divorce with someone that you loved with all your heart. It’s to the point and not too long….about three bubble baths long.

A keeper

This is one of those gems that make me feel like I stumbled upon a winning jackpot lottery ticket of insight & inspiration. Potentially life changing prospectives & stirs well the soul.
One I know I’ll listen to again.
Also. Excellent narrator. Very relaxing voice, & calm matter of fact expression.
