Synopsis: Have you ever tried to change for the better, and someone you love comes and pulls you down?
You think you are finally going to be able to conquer your problems, but, out of nowhere, the people that are supposed to be there supporting you end up being the ones who drag you deeper into your struggles until you “can’t go on anymore.”
Why? Why does this happen? Why is the world like this?
One word: apathy.
Hellen Keller once said, “Science may have found a cure for most evils; but it has found no remedy for the worst of them all – the apathy of human beings.”
Are you ready to understand “why” horrible things happen?
The answer has helped thousands of readers break-free from their biggest problems, and given them the strength to overcome. The strength to find their birthright.
Review: This is a self help book. I thought it did well at sticking to the topic and it did well to explain how introspection could help someone out of a dark time. The book is wrote from the authors own experiences and it just feels like a nice fireside chat, it’s not at all lecture-y in my opinion.
However, I did think that sometimes the author could get a little long winded and circle back to reiterate the same message over and over again. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, it just didn’t work for me. I will also say that if you are struggling and you don’t have anyone, please also seek help if you are seeking self help books. Self help can be great, but they can’t replace a person who has knowledge and tools at their disposal to help you help yourself.
Verdict: A decent self help!
