Book Promo for “Difficult Happens”

Honest communication is a scarcity. We spend our time talking, posting, assuming, and reacting while spending very little time listening and understanding ourselves and others. We communicate in ways we have learned in our lives ignoring negative patterns and stuffing our feelings.

In this revealing, fun, and easy-to-read book, Lara Currie explores how we are triggered in our everyday interactions which leads to over-stimulation that has us feeling anxious, stressed out, and depressed.Lara gives you a categorical breakdown of the What, Who, Why, and When of common triggers as well as what you can do to recognize them, how to resist “just reacting”, and how to establish clear and protective boundaries so you can thrive!

With strategies to clearly define, and if necessary, defend your intentions in a way that is both respectful and firm.

As you follow these steps, your relationships, confidence, and self-esteem will improve, and you will find joy in increasingly drama free and honest relationships. Drawing from her work in high conflict positions, her own personal journey, and some of the leading thinkers of our time, Lara leads the reader to an increased self-awareness, an understanding of what that “knot” in the pit of your stomach is trying to tell you, and skills you can implement today to become the person you were meant to be.
