YOUR LIFE IN A BOOK
Perhaps you have never seen your name published in a book,
or perhaps you have, but never like this. Surely there are
things that you never knew how, when, or with whom to share them.
Sometimes simply listening to others who have gone through the same
things we have can help us more than turning to science, religious
or spiritual texts, motivational books, or professional advice.
Knowing that we are not the only ones that have had a pleasant or
terrible experience with something, that our situation is more
common than we thought, that our fears are similar to those
of others, that our needs and desires are not unlike those
of people who live in distant countries, or who belong to different
cultures. Knowing that there are other people out there like us
helps us overcome the feeling of isolation, loneliness, guilt, or
the feeling that no one understands us.
Understanding and accepting others, and seeing a little of ourselves
in them is the best way to understand and accept ourselves for who we are.
