Like the characters in The Chakra Diaries, she needs to revisit her past, recognize and change her "story."
"Don't live as if the present is the past," she writes. Instead, check in with yourself every morning, asking "How do I feel?" Then she explains how to follow the feeling to its root - usually in childhood to the first time you felt this way. Once you become aware how your brain was "wired" early in childhood and became addicted to certain feelings, you can then choose a better feeling and change your words. Doing this every day for 28 days will rewire your brain, explains Gosselin, so it's a good daily practice.
Taking Gosselin's journey with her as she discovers why she is unhappy, or always feels second-best, and then dramatically changes her life by processing her own feelings, is very inspirational and can guide anyone along the same beautiful path.
