A True Story of Overcoming Abuse and Healing the Spirit
By Marion Elizabeth Witte
This is a true story, Marion Witte’s story. She goes into intimate detail to explain how things came to be the way they were. She is very sensitive and even understanding of what her family was like and who they were. Marion offers acceptance and respect to the people that were her grandparents and parents, in spite of things not being “right”. I found this to be a great statement about healing and the person that Marion Witte has become.
Marion chooses to focus on the journey of overcoming abuse. She tells of the effects of what she endured because of the abuse, but even more importantly the recovery involved in surviving abuse. She does not focus on the what, so much as the why, and the way out.
The journey is difficult, yet Marion Witte reaches deep within herself to overcome years, even generations of abuse. She sets forth an example for others on similar journeys of their own.
Marion searches for herself through many sources from medical professionals to spiritual shaman. What we sometimes cannot understand, we must learn to accept in order to heal and overcome. Forgiveness is the key to healing. Ultimately, Marion does find herself and healing. She also finds she has much to offer and share. Marion sets herself free, through acceptance, forgiveness and healing.
Marion Witte’s message is important. It is one about overcoming abuse and healing the spirit. The world is a better place because of Marion Witte and her brave and honest book.
