The writings from this book represent freedom. When thinking there's no escape mentally, tears shed from my eyes with sadness and anxiety; and so, my thought process believes my voice is only heard on paper. As for me, writing my thoughts on paper helps to eliminate the confusion that's held hostage in my heart and mind. I share my emotions, whether it's good or bad and honestly, sometimes it's hard to read over the struggles; but in order for me to avoid re-living my biggest fears, I learned that I must give myself a message at the end of each story. That's when new life comes to restore my joy and I grow from my past to live brighter for my future.
