The year that Remy Chausse of Tustin, Calif., met her future spouse, she was earning $176,000 per year. The following year, her income dropped.

"This is because I ignored my instincts and ended up living in a hostile environment where I felt like I was constantly fighting for myself," she says. "My natural optimistic and exuberant energy literally got sucked out of me."

As part of her recovery, she wrote her first book, "Living Life as an Exclamation Point!" which led to a self-help program, "The Get UNstuck Breakthrough Course!"

She writes and speaks on overcoming invalidation to get "unstuck" and "live the life you're meant to live."

"The road to recovery has been long and hard," she says. "But there's nothing like helping others out of the same situation you've been in to aid in your own triumph."
