Publisher's Summary

In this life-changing audiobook Blake D. Bauer explains why depression, addiction, physical illness, unfulfilling work and relationship problems are caused by years of hiding your true emotions, denying your life purpose and living in fear.
Having already helped thousands of people around the world find lasting solutions that conventional medicine, psychiatry or religion couldn't offer, this book will show you how to free yourself from the destructive thoughts, habits and situations that are stopping you from being happy and well.
In simple practical steps you’ll learn how to slow down and create a healthier relationship to yourself that is based on acceptance, kindness, honesty and self-worth. You’ll also find out how to transform the stress, anxiety and insecurity that result from constantly trying to please others into lasting confidence, self-respect and inner peace.
Whether it’s negative thinking, financial worry, loneliness, guilt or self-doubt that’s holding you back, Blake Bauer’s words will move you to take better care of yourself, heal old pain and courageously move forward. If you’re ready to enjoy your life, feel passionate about your work and create fulfilling relationships, this book will support you to live authentically, love wholeheartedly and finally value yourself enough to put everyday health and happiness at the center of your life.

Life changing

Self-love is the foundation, without it... nothing can stand.

Blake puts it into words, reinforcing this truth.

Thank you Blake. You help save me.

We can all gain from the questions alone

Blake D Bauer has searched and found what it is to be a complete human being and in that much of what he shares is helpful whether you are really suffering or maybe just lightly living in fear. I will be keeping this book and listening to it again and again until I can feel true inside myself. Thank you Blake

A genuine attempt but not scientific

What did you like best about You Were Not Born to Suffer? What did you like least?

A very positive message about love and honesty. draws on some good quotes.
Some sweeping claims that are not backed with evidence.
This is a book you have to take on faith.

What was most disappointing about Blake Bauer’s story?

It was rather vague about how to achieve his proposed loving state and following his advice could cause personal hardship on many levels.

Did Blake Bauer do a good job differentiating each of the characters? How?


If this book were a film would you go see it?
