As Good as Gold: A 12-Step Guide to Self-love, Honor & Respect (2021) by Tracy Martin
It is in those rare moments when we’re agonizing over the love we can’t seem to find or hold onto that a door cracks open and a tiny sliver of light falls across our path beckoning us to follow it to the truth of who we are. This twelve-step guide isn’t designed to fix what could never be broken, but to dispel a lot of the myths and lies we learned as children that make it damn near impossible for us to love, honor, and respect ourselves with any amount of consistency.
As Good as Gold offers the kind of aftercare we all need when we’ve been shaken up by love’s sweet promises broken. A life-coach for women starting over, Tracy invites you to step into your own journey of self-discovery and self-love. In each chapter, she reveals another step forward in that process, complete with honoring exercises to help you discover the boundless love within you. These twelve steps will, through your own unique perspective, lead you to your treasure chest of gold, the love, honor, and respect you’ve always wanted.

Simply put, approval had to come from a man – at least that’s what Martin thought. She hurried to get married, failed at that, and hurried to get married again. She changed nearly everything about herself to fit in with her new husband’s life. For him, she became a hippie, an activist, a green-thumbed survivalist. She threw out her high heels and makeup in favor of Birkenstocks and cotton pants. Together they left their comfortable urban life and became back-to-the-landers, hell-bent on saving Mother Earth. But what began as an optimistic intentional community experiment soon turned into a partner-swapping sex scandal that wasn’t at all what she’d signed up for. Now, how could she ever get back to some kind of good?
