“I was a marionette… oblivious to the deceit pulling my strings.” Diana Iannarone
My financial career was one of the highlights of my life. Yet despite my 25 years in the
business achieving tremendous success, behind closed doors I was being manipulated
out of my assets, out of my mind and out of my core identity. Like a marionette, I was
oblivious to the deceit pulling the strings. Once I awakened to the truth, I decided to write my story.
Part memoir, part coaching how-to, “Me & My Shadow: Move from Fear and Control to Love
and Freedom” helps the reader uncover the core childhood wounding that we keep alive
until stepping into our wholeness as fully matured adults.
Amazing. The Answers to Why We Stay and How To Heal
"I've read many books on the subject of Sociopaths and Exploitive Relationships, and they
helped me a great deal, but this was the book that was missing. For the first time in my
adult life, I can see the path that lead me from the pain of my childhood into the arms and
the lives of cruel people I thought were on my side. I've spent many years in therapy trying
to explain that I am fractured, fragmented, and dissociative I've even explored the
possibility that I had multiple personalities. Now I see that I have been experiencing life
from one fragmented 1/2 of myself at a time never whole. I now understand how I
became fragmented and how to become whole. It's a beautiful thing. And all my regret that
I lost decades of my life to abusers and addiction, and all my fear that it is too late for me
all of that pain has been transformed into hope. I cried with gratitude while reading this
book. Finally, finally, finally. Thank you, thank you, thank you."
