The stories herein are often harsh, but as factual as memory will allow. For the most part the persons discussed are deceased, so if you think you recognize yourself, or a certain situation, I’m sorry.
Each entry will be a vignette told in third person perspective and in random order. It is the author’s intention to intersperse the entries with as many happy memories as the author can remember, and there are many.
So what is the purpose?
It is a sharing of deep emotional experience. It is the authors hope that the stories shared will let others know that they are not the only ones, and that the bad experiences don’t have to be self-perpetuating.
Life can be harsh, but it doesn’t have to stick to you. Break free from the bad experience and make choices for yourself about what your life will be from here. It is trial and error and mistakes will happen… learn from them and go on.
Life is not a trap. Be persistent, be resilient, and move beyond your circumstance.
