Elaina WChicago, ILAge: 25-34Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5October 18, 2010Elaina WChicago, ILAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4As a now-former cutter, I'm always interested in hearing how people have struggled with and overcome self-injury. While this book isn't from the pen of someone who self-injurers, it is the narrative of Jackie, as told to one of the mental health workers. Each chapter interweaves Jackie's story of self-harm and her journey toward recovery. That section is followed by bits of explanation for those looking to better understand why people would act out in this way, and the book also includes helpful workbook-like sections with questions for personal reflection or discussion with a mentor or therapist.
The only drawback to this book--and maybe to life in general!--is that, as Jackie slowly recovered, I had a hard time tracing the steps she took to stop self-injuring and start coping with life in a more healthful and God-honoring way. What does it look like to trust God more with the hard stuff? What does it look like to sit with difficult feelings? How does talking about feelings really help you feel better? What other things that are healthy can we do instead of self-injuring?
I read this book three years ago when I was still occasionally cutting, and I wanted a detailed (but also nonjudgmental) roadmap to stop. Unfortunately, each person's journey is different and the way out, necessarily, is also different. I guess God uses lots of ways to help us heal. If you struggle with self-injury, this book could be one tool God will use to help you explore your past and your own journey forward toward a full life in him.
