Description

The reality slap is a rude awakening that creates a gap between what you have and what you want. It could be an unwanted divorce, the death of a loved one, or an unexpected medical diagnosis. It may be as simple as recurring feelings of failure or disappointment that life isn’t going according to plan. The bigger the gap, the harder it is to bridge it—but it is possible. The Reality Slap offers real-life stories and simple exercises to help readers stop depending on things outside of themselves for validation and well-being and instead work on finding peace and fulfillment within. Author Russ Harris was motivated to write this book when his son was diagnosed with autism, prompting a move across the country to be closer to the best school for him. The result is a heartfelt, engaging, and deeply personal guide to discovering what really matters and taking steps toward greater life fulfillment. Readers learn to find peace and calm in the midst of pain and chaos by using painful emotions to cultivate greater wisdom and compassion. The acceptance and commitment therapy concepts in this book will help all readers not only survive, but thrive in the face of life’s challenges.
