Everyone loves the movies. You can lose yourself in the story and live vicariously through the main character. In her book Stuck with Mr. Wrong? Ten Steps to Starring in your own Life Story, author Amy Beth O’Brien shows women how to BE the main character in their own lives. By looking at life as though it were a movie, she shows women how they can stop playing supporting actress, extra, or antagonist in a relationship, and to step into their starring role as the leading lady of her own life.
O’Brien, who developed this unique strategy, shares her real-life experiences, those of many other women, and stories we all know and love from the big screen, to help readers live more empowered lives both in and out of a relationship. She shows the reader how personal triumph doesn’t just happen in the movies. It happens in real life too. By viewing life from an audience’s perspective, women can create the kind of lives that inspirational movies are made from.
With more than 100 tips, writing exercises, case studies, and films, she brings the reader along a path of empowerment in ten steps, including:
- Embrace your inner screenwriter—confronting fears and writing a new script
- Listen to your director—trusting intuition and following your wise inner guide
- Learn your lines—speaking assertively and standing up to mistreatment
- Set the stage—imagining a future life you know you were meant to lead
- Edit your film—cutting those things from your life that no longer serve you in order to make room for the things that do.
- Accept your Oscar—honoring your life as the Star of your Own Life Story.
Stuck with Mr. Wrong offers women a new and inspiring way to look at their relationships with men. This book is for any woman in a relationship she has doubts about or hoping to find a new strategy to make it work better, and for any woman considering or experiencing a breakup or pursuing a new relationship and looking for a better approach. It’s also a great gift to give a friend, or for men looking for some insight.
