In her book, How to Survive Your Own Worst Enemy, author Amy Chua explains how to deal with the most painful situations you’ve ever experienced.
She writes: “I’ve dealt with things that make me cry, like the death of my parents or a death of a loved one, and I’ve dealt.
I’ve also had the most terrible and painful experience, and that’s where I find myself today.”
She tells her story in a TEDx talk, and in this TEDx podcast, I asked her about her own experiences with the “repercussions” of oppression psychology.
She talks about the most common experiences she’s had in her life.
Being bullied at school She was bullied at her school.
It was a lot of physical and verbal abuse.
One time, she was bullied by a guy.
She was sitting on the steps outside the school with her brother, and he said, “Are you going to be okay?”
And she said, No.
He’s not going to get his lunch.
He didn’t want to see her, and she didn’t like that.
And he got angry and said, You’re not going anywhere.
He went on to say, She’s going to lose your money, your grades, your job, you’re going to have to get married, you are going to go back to China.
And she was crying, and crying and crying.
I felt really helpless, and it really hit home, and then I had to leave and go to a new school.
I was so afraid of the things that were going to happen, because I had been in the same situation, and people were always trying to hurt me, and my parents had just lost their jobs and were living in poverty, and the police were beating people, and there were lots of things that they were not going see.
But I remember thinking, That’s not how it’s supposed to be, but this is the way it’s happening.
And so I had a really hard time.
I thought, What am I going to do about this?
And I was scared of it, and scared of people, because they’re all going to come after me.
So I felt scared and alone, and not safe.
And then I went home and I wrote this letter to my parents, telling them that I had just been in a bad situation, that I wasn’t going to forgive anyone for what had happened, and if they had done anything, they were going in the wrong direction.
And my mother wrote back and said that she had never seen that kind of letter before, and this was going to help me.
And I wrote back, I’ve just been going through the motions.
And her response was, This is just not the way to deal.
You’ve been feeling scared and helpless for so long.
And this is not how you deal with it.
So you’ve got to write something that actually says, This isn’t how it is, and you’re dealing with it, you’ve just got to do it.
And so that was the moment when I really decided to get out of the house and do something.
And that was actually my first step toward going to a therapy center.
Having a family crisis She went through a lot, and her mother was struggling to pay the rent on her house.
Her dad was also struggling.
And, in my family, there was this really strong, intense feeling that I was going against what my parents were telling me, that my dad had to go, that he couldn’t do it anymore.
And it was such a big deal for her.
And because she was in that position, I think she was really angry at me, I guess.
And what I wanted to do was say, OK, I understand that, and to try to be the voice of reason.
And the more I think about it, the more that it becomes clear to me that that was just a really bad idea.
She’s not a great writer, and they were very good at it.
And one thing that I think that we all can do to heal from that trauma is to try and do a better job of supporting our own family.
And by doing that, we can help our children and our families feel safe and supported in a way that they’re not able to.
And maybe we can have more of that kind a family atmosphere, a safe place to be. 3.
Being a victim of violence she was abused as a child, and also had to deal and deal and have to deal physically with the trauma of being a victim.
She also had a lot in common with my parents.
Her mom, who was the most abusive person in the family, was a very violent person.
And when she was a child and had her own abuse problems, she had to get therapy to get her head around it.
She had to learn to accept it.
My dad was abusive, too.
And they were two very different people.
And their children were
