Getting Here From There The First 10 Years By Clara Atmane
Learn to tell your truth from a reflective, honest, nonreactive prospective.
Recently retired from a challenging legal career, Clara Atmane was asking the big questions: Who am I now? Why am I here now? Why am I still so lonely?
Digging into the first ten years of her life, Atmane uncovered secrets and hidden treasure. Blame and anger turned to wonder and curiosity. Emotions and trauma in those first ten years defined her; yet, her ability to survive and the techniques she developed also came to shape who she had become. In Getting Here From There, Ms. Atmane proves that where you start has no bearing on where you can end up.
Born the youngest of six in a farming family, the idyllic backdrop hid a hostile and unwelcoming environment. The messages in those formative years were clear: You are ugly. Your birth caused our mother’s mental illness. If you tell, you will not be believed. There was a dark side to her family. There were villains. Thankfully, there was also survival.
Getting Here From There will show you how one woman came to forgive and even thank the people who mistreated her.
