The author of this site has written an honest and deeply personal memoir which traces his journey from an early life filled with insecure attachments, confusion, fear and vulnerability to an adult life lived with secure attachments, clarity, confidence and inner strength. The author holds strongly to the belief that acceptance of the impermanence of life is the key to happiness and contentment. It is possible to deal with struggles and difficult times when we accept where we are at any given moment, and move forward without fear of the unknown. While we may not be able to control our environment, we can control our response to it.
The author was at one time addicted to alcohol, drugs, relationships and religion as a way to satisfy an unnatural craving for attachment, a desire which was rooted in his early relationship with his parents, and his ever-changing, unpredictable childhood. The reader will learn a lot about the Jehovah’s Witnesses, a group the author once associated with which impacted him in various ways throughout his life. This book is not about disputing the teaching of the Jehovah’s Witnesses or any other religion; it is about learning to be complete and whole outside of the context of an unhealthy relationship with people, religion or substances. It is also about empowerment, independence and freedom of mind, ideals which do run contrary to the teachings of many faiths.
