I wrote this book so that you might be spared. Not from having to learn the lessons I had to learn. No one can spare you that, because learning is experiential, and you have to do it yourself. As a wise person once told me: If i could spare your the pain of experiencing , I wouldn't-because I wouldn't want to deprive you of the strength and wisdom you'll gain form having gone through it and come out the other side. Each and every one of you is a powerful, resilient human being capable of living the life you design for yourself. I wish all of you the faith and the courage to pinpoint your passion.
