Young, glamourous and hungry for success, Sharon Bull spent years working to achieve a high-flying career. She was desperate to achieve that ‘perfect’ lifestyle we all see in the media, craving status, money and material possessions. And she had the determination and motivation to drive her forward.
But what were her real reasons for craving such a fairy tale existence?
Here Sharon tells the story of how her depression, anxiety and low self esteem eventually triggered a shopping addiction, which left her in crippling debt. In 2010 she lost everything and almost took her own life in the depths of her despair. But somehow, she found a way to claw herself back, transform her life, reconnect with nature and inspire others to find fulfilment beyond the superficial.
Stripped Bare is an eye-opening, stigma busting, inspiring tale that shines a light on the toxic effects of consumerism within today’s society. It’s the story of how one woman swapped credit cards for compassion, and pressure for purpose.
