Such an inspiring story by Dr. Edith Eger, a psychologist practicing in the United States. Holocaust survivor and a specialist in the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder and her daughter, Dr. Marianne Engle, licensed clinical psychologist and a sports psychologist.
In this episode, we talked about her new book, The Gift: 14 Lessons to Save Your Life, how she was able to keep her drive throughout the horrific experience, how does she move on from life, and what is self-love, and how to forgive.
She gave one of my favorite quotes of hers when I asked her about explaining to her kids what happened to her, which is 'it's not my identity. It's not who I am. It's what was done to me. So I refuse to be a victim. I was victimized. It's not who I am. It's what was done to me. I'm still a good person, and I can choose my attitude, the way I not to react, but to respond to anything that comes my way'
