For some of us it’s situational and for others it’s a chemical imbalance. For some it’s triggered by screaming people in our faces, reminding us of childhood abuse and for others it’s the long hot shower turned cold because we can’t fathom how we’re going to finish the day. For some, bi-polar disorder, PTSD, Anxiety Disorder, Depression, Mania ….. showing up to work hoping you can make it until noon so you can drive around the block and sit at the corner and cry it out or hell, not even making it out of bed on a Tuesday. Tuesday’s are hard.
Truth. Depression you DO NOT OWN ME. I will refuse to allow you to take me down. I will get help. I will see my therapist. I will take my medication. I will eat right. I will exercise. I will tell the people I love the most when I am hurting instead of isolating. I will REFUSE, do you hear me now, I will REFUSE TO TAKE THIS LYING DOWN.
I will write a book about you. How you tried to kill me. And I will save others because if I am here for good …. SO ARE THEY.
Believe. Hard. For whatever reason. Depression ? @*(# ….. WE ARE HERE TO STAY!

Courtney Frey Press Release Short

A superb tool for groups, organizations, and independent therapists and counselors. Please contact the author or the publisher today for more information on group book sales and speaking engagements.
I told my story. The day my publisher sent me the author copies it was as if I took off all my clothes and walked into the streets naked for all to see. Was I really doing this? What would people think? How was my story any different, better, or more interesting than any other stories? Truth is … it’s not. It’s just a voice. A Singular story that denies pain it’s opportunity to destroy. I tell because I know you need to. WE all do. But, it’s not just to tell. It’s to change. To empower. To inspire. To literally unite the stories of deep, painful wounds from broken hearts and instigate a purposeful, passionate change within and around us.
You are connected. Please, don’t isolate.
I told my story for you.
Today, $2.99 is the investment you will make to begin telling yourself ….. NOTHING IS EVER IN VAIN.
I’d love to hear from you.
Your best friend confided in you. Your sister wants to change. Your relationship with your mom is broken. Your husband struggles with your depression. Whether for you or for someone in your life, Restitution is a message of hope that speaks loudly, “YOU ARE NOT A VICTIM ANY LONGER!” It is a novel-like approach, based on a true story, that embodies the triumph over pain we all seek and hope for. Give the gift of healing to someone you love today.
Amy lost the use of her legs and would never walk again.
Rebecca’s father, after murdering her mother, was dying in her care.
Courtney was estranged from her family after telling the truth of her abuse.
They had one thing in common.
How do you take terrible, awful circumstances and broken relationships and turn them around?
BE THE CHANGE.
These characters, in this based on a true story novel, lend us the lesson that we are accountable for discovering and fighting for peace, love, and joy in our lives. We cannot expect others to save us. We must save ourselves.
No matter what situation you are in right now, you are not helpless. Whether on bended knee, at the King’s throne, or your ultimate decision to let them go and fix yourself first …. BE THE CHANGE.
You’ve got this.
YOU MATTER. You can. Be. The. Change.
It’s Not in Vain. Your Experience Counts.
Someone once asked me, “How can you possibly say that the abuse you suffered had a purpose?” I had to take a slow breath and respond softly, “The abuse didn’t have a purpose …. My survival did. There’s a difference. When I say that nothing is in vain I’m implying that in anything we overcome in life we can find a seed of hope, a place of choice – that choice is to cower or challenge. Learn and grow, or give up. There is power and purpose to learning and growing through our experiences. So, no – the abuse isn’t the purpose …. My choosing to overcome the effects of it is.”
She paused for a moment and then, through brimming tears whispered, “I want to know what that feels like.”
In Restitution, the novel, you’ll meet several characters who overcome incredible and sometimes tragic events by refusing to allow others to steal from them their opportunity to overcome in the first place.
