The Road to Unconditional Love Starts Here
August 4, 2022
In her thirties, Stacia Sims embarked on an intense journey toward self-discovery when her therapist posed a simple question: “What does love mean?” Unable to articulate an answer, Sims suddenly realized what had been blocking her path toward healing. “That was my first realization that I had never been taught or shown unconditional love. Not by my parents and not by the world,” she wrote in the prologue to her new book, It Is All About Me!: Breaking Cycles and Loving Who I Am.
In this collection of true stories about her life, Sims unpacks the impact of an upbringing in a narcissistic family where love had to be earned, her true self had to be hidden and generational cycles needed to be broken. Her journey led her to the realization that what happened in her past doesn’t define her present or her future and it is her aim with this book to show readers that with the right mindset and guidance, this can be their truth, too.
“Being true to yourself can sometimes make others uncomfortable,” Stacia said. “But another person’s discomfort should not become your burden to resolve. Stop carrying other people’s baggage.”
It Is All About Me! is loaded with insights on what real, authentic love means and how to embrace one’s true self.
“If you find your life revolving around others’ expectations or desires, it’s time to allow your journey to be about you for a change,” Sims added.
