We are each born into mortality with an utter dependence on our parents, or others, for our security, nourishment, and direction. For some, these basic needs can prove illusive, giving way to abuse, abandonment, and a lack of the necessities of life: food, shelter, clothing, and love. This book is one man's story of self-improvement, as a result of overcoming insurmountable odds and tremendous hardships. Through his eyes see the world from the perspective of a child, relinquished to a boarding school and left to fend for himself. Anxiety, depression, and a sense of helplessness ensnare him, edging the troubled young man ever closer to suicide. Reaching adulthood, his life as a ‘nobody’ appears to be inescapable, forcing him into one sad failure after another...until he discovers his self-worth.
