Book Title: Dying to Belong: How I Accidentally Found Myself by Diane Mullins
Category Adult Non-Fiction (18+), 178 pages
Genre Memoir
Publisher Funshine Publishing
Release date March 2020
Content Rating: PG-13 due to a few cuss words


As a very shy, meek, and insecure little girl, Diane Mullins grew up the youngest of seven children in an abusive family. Never shown or taught how to love or be loved, Diane grew up with no self-confidence or self-esteem. Who knew that it would take a near-fatal accident to help her find her way to self-love and spiritual freedom? In Dying to Belong, Diane shares her story that begins at the scene of a body- and spirit-crushing ATV accident. Forced to ride out of the wilderness area herself, she arrived at the hospital to discover broken bones, ruptured organs, and a punctured lung. She was literally on the doorstep of death. During the excruciating process of physical healing, Diane began exploring a spiritual journey that led to loving, accepting, and respecting herself. Diane learned the empowering lesson that by changing her thoughts and feelings, she has been able to live a life of freedom from negativity and pain.

If I had to choose one word to describe Diane Mullins’ story in Dying to Belong I’d choose captivating. When I initially picked up the book, I’d planned to read a chapter before going to bed. That didn’t happen. Reading about her awful ATV accident was captivating and horrifying, and I had a strong desire to see how everything played out. 

 

The accident was just the beginning. It brought many battles to the forefront of her life…to a crossroad, so to speak. Her story is inspiring and empowering.

 

I admired Ms. Mullins’ inner strength and courage. I sympathized with her and rooted for her to find her way, her purpose, and her physical, emotional, and spiritual healing. And though I didn’t experience a lot of what she endured, I still felt her pain and connected with her spirit. 

 

Oftentimes memoirs are difficult for me to connect with, but this one carries so much weight and has a sincere and honest tone making it memorable and inspiring.
