An absolutely beautiful and inspiring read by an inspiring musician/singer

A few days ago I decided to buy my own physical copy of Turn Your Pain Into Art (I wanted the real thing that I could read.) and after I had made the purchase I noticed that the Audio version was free on Audible with a thirty day free trial (or something like that.) so I decided too give it a listen and I was NOT disappointed. Ariel has written such a personal book and I absolutely love how she takes her own experiences and lessons she has learned and incorporates them into tips and advice that ANYONE can use to better their own lives. I have never, since I could read non-picture books, read a book more powerful or relatable than Turn Your Pain Into Art. Ariel explains what it’s like to live with Depression, Self-Hatred and Self-Harm to a T. I’ll be honest, I cried A LOT listening to the Audio version alone and I am sure I will cry even more when I get to read the book in real life. I cried because Ariel’s descriptions of her struggles and what she felt were so REAL and so close to the stuff I have dealt with in MY life. I felt a kind of relief when she started to talk about her experiences with Religion as they came very close to what I have dealt with when it came to Religious people. The Judgement, Being told I was nothing without God and that I had to obey EVERYTHING my elders told me or I’d burn in hell. Ariel, Thank you for doing what you do. Thank you for making your music and most of all thank you for writing a book so amazing that I will never forget. Thank you for giving me a guide so I can turn MY pain into Art. You’re truly an amazing woman and a great inspiration.
