Publisher's Summary

Discovering My Scars is a moving account of a young woman’s struggle with unexplained depression that leads her to cope with self-injury.

One dramatic day in her college dorm, self-injury lands her in the surreal world of a psych ward for 74 hours. Those traumatic hours define her life for many years, until she comes to see the trauma through the lens of self-forgiveness, ongoing recovery, and God’s grace of revelation. Within Discovering My Scars, Stephanie Kostopoulos makes herself vulnerable and invites listeners into her reality with raw and visceral depictions of non-suicidal self-injury. The journey encapsulates life during her 20s, while stepping back to childhood, revealing abuse that explains the events of her young adult life. 

Discovering My Scars commands attention and has a powerful message that lies in Stephanie’s first-person experience and authenticity. It is packed with revelations about what can underlie inexplicable anxiety and depression, and lets listeners know it’s okay to “discover your own scars”, through the process of ongoing recovery and forgiveness.

Powerful real life story that will help you discover your true self along the way

While listening to Stephanie’s inspirational work, I felt as though I was transported into the moments which she so vividly described. She was able to share the truth of her journey, the positives and negatives, while raising awareness on the importance of mental health and self discovery. Stephanie’s exceptional narration allows listeners to truly connect with her story. Definitely a must read that I will be recommending to my friends and family.

Powerful and Moving

Stephanie Kostopoulos bravely and eloquently shares her story and journey, one that most would likely shy away from mentioning in private conversations but she puts herself out there to bravely help many who have walked a similar path or know someone who has. Stephanie also narrates her own book and does so very well with an engaging, perfect cadence and rhythm. I would highly recommend this book and audiobook to anyone, especially those struggling with their own personal traumas.
