High Achievers Like
Amy Winehouse Who Crash And Burn - Dr. Laurie Pappas Offers Practical
Advice And No-Charge Consultations
who experience great material, artistic or prominent success in life,
upon arriving in the position they thought they wanted, feel an
emptiness that they didn’t expect. What is one to do? Dr.
Laurie Pappas offers practical advice in her book 'The Loving Heart'
and is offering a limited number of no-charge consultations to those
who have found themselves in this situation
MI - August 3, 2011] Amy Winehouse is but the latest
example of a highly successful person who came to a tragic and
unexpected end. Not all these situations end in tragedy. For many
highly successful people, the emptiness they feel manifests instead as
depression, lethargy, dissatisfaction, helplessness and hundreds of
other debilitating, life destroying conditions.
"When we witness a tragedy such as that of Amy Winehouse," stated Dr.
Pappas, "many of us can’t help but have sympathy for this gifted
individual, with all of her struggles. Amy was someone who
was unable to overcome her fears, insecurities and the overwhelming
circumstances of her life. Yet, a happening such as this,
asks us to question our own lives, observing our own capacity for hope,
our ability to rise above life’s challenges, and our capacity to
discover meaning and purpose in our trials."
"I view the challenges of life as good for the soul, in that they can
provide the stepping ground for profound awareness and
insight. Many who suffer greatly, ultimately become wise
about the great truths of living, and often become extraordinary
helpers to those in need. Often, those who are sensitive and
struggle the most, are the very ones who can experience the most
magnificent triumphs if they can manage to persevere, even in the face
of great adversity. I believe that hope is one of those
things that is always there for the taking, and I urge anyone, anywhere
who is grappling with inner suffering, to get the help they need, hang
in there, and refuse to let go of hope. If they can, they may
find that the outcome is well worth the fight.
Dr. Pappas presents her approach in 'The Loving Heart: Navigating the
Journey from Conflict to Peace'. The book is supplemented by a workbook

"This doesn't just affect celebrities like Amy Winehouse," continued
Dr. Pappas, "as many people who experience great material, artistic or
prominent success in life, upon arriving in the position they thought
they wanted, feel an emptiness that they didn’t expect. In
addition, frequently they find that they must make great sacrifices to
remain in such a place of distinction. Contentment in life,
they may or may not realize, may be closely tied to achieving a healthy
relationship with themselves, their families and/or some sort of Divine
