Too Much Love Is Not Enough

"Too Much Love Is Not Enough: A Memoir of Silence of Childhood Sexual Abuse" by  Dr. Rosenna Bakari

| Website | Twitter | Instagram | GoodReads | Bravely, this memoir is a UV light revealing the dreadful stains of silence. Rosenna Bakari’s expression of truth about healing from childhood sexual abuse presents irrefutable evidence that trauma occurred, in spite of the squeaky-clean surface. She offers a rare validation of the harm of silence for adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse. When she founded Talking Trees (an empowerment organization for adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse) she had no idea that she would champion the cause through the telling of her own story. Rosenna’s effort to live her adult life as if childhood sexual abuse never happened supported her approach to personal and professional trials. In spite of her self-motivation to overcome every negative effect of childhood sexual abuse, all of the systems upon which she relied deepened her pain. To her dismay, achievements of family, financial stability and earning her Ph.D. in psychology bumped up against her trauma as she hid thoughts of suicide and accumulating health concerns. Rosenna brings to life the process of recovery from early life trauma and unravels the misperceptions and coping styles that often evolve, but no longer serve us as adults.
