Please let me introduce my list of the very best misery books. My name is Rosemary Price, I am a psychic medium clairvoyant, life coach, relationship expert, therapist and white witch. As such I am also an empath who tunes into and understand people more than most. When you are feeling down have a read of one of these and it might make you realise how lucky you are. We often get into rough, misguided, unhappy, in advised situations which lead us to upset and worry but hearing and reading about the life of some poor soul who went through a terrible time through no fault of their own makes you realise that you are quite fortunate, you can do something to change your situation if you really want things to be different, nine times out of then the victims who relate their history to you had no better choices at all and just had to put up with things and suffer. The victims all have one thing in common, being able find happiness and survive later on in life despite having had such a terrible past they could easily use it as an excuse for forever being miserable, going off the rails, abusing others or becoming just another loser.

It is hard to comprehend how a rational and sane person can inflict such torture and sorrow on another human being but sadly it happens. Most of their victims happen to be in the wrong place at the wrong time, meeting the wrong person, otherwise they might have been one of the fortunate ones who can just sit and read the publication about it later. When choosing this list of best misery books to read I bore in mind that they are sad, emotional, sometimes hard to read. I also bore in mind that some of them are now out of print or hard to find, possibly very hard to find and only available as chewed up, dog eared second hand copies at high prices.
There is a huge difference between a person choosing to be in a bad situation because they do not have the courage to make a change or be on their own or get a job so that they provide for themself instead of relying on their husband to support them financially, or a child being abused by an adult who has it totally under their control. A child cannot decide that it is better to get a job, a child cannot decide to go and rent their own flat, a child is reliant on adults around them. If they leave home to escape an awful family environment and become homeless they often end up even worse off because of the strangers and chancers they meet later.
So please remember that as an adult we have more choice, we have the ability to change our life if we hate it that much, it is just up to us to do it. Nobody says it is easy but at least it is not impossible, it really depends on how much you want it and how important it is to you. If you are unhappy about anything in your life ask yourself if it is really that bad and if the answer is yes then work out what you ought to do about it and do it. It might be hard and take time but if it is better than staying as you are - take that first step. It is usually far easier for an adult to make decisions and changes but when you look at the awful life the children in these books were forced to lead you can understand that even an adult in those situations would find it suicidal to live that way and very difficult to improve. Imagine then how hard it was for children to bear it.
Psychic readings can help you to decide which is the best way forward and help you work out what your options are. They can help you to establish if things will change of their own accord if you just wait and see or if you need to change things yourself before any change will occur. But if a change is possible and you will be happier for you you need to make those changes yourself. List of best misery books to read by Rosemary Price psychic medium, life coach and therapist.
