Lose the Façade - Kelley Sgroi

Talk about a life full of trouble with a somewhat belated turnaround Kelley’s story is just that. From her early childhood, she experienced very negative things and carried that mindset into her adult life. She believed in order to be acceptable she had to be perfect. Along the way, she developed an eating disorder, got married, and had triplets which she found very challenging to handle only she wouldn’t admit that to anyone. She had to keep up appearances of being perfect. While in her forties she was diagnosed with breast cancer. That took a year-long chunk out of her life while she endured all the usual therapies for breast cancer. At that point, after twenty-five years of being a dental hygienist, she decided she wanted to help women and earned a master’s degree in counseling. Even as a therapist, she experienced some very negative things like a narcissistic husband who took her passport and left her stranded in a foreign country. She determined she needed to decide as to whether she would continue to be victimized by her circumstances or step up and create the existence she really wanted for herself. She worked with a coach who told her that the negative self-belief she carried inside her was inviting all the negative stuff into her life. Anyone who has done any self-assessment and tried to turn the direction of their life around will for sure identify with her story. Those who have not done so will be inspired to take a look at themselves and set off on a new journey of their own.
