At times when life gets difficult to bear, you want to stop and hide from people, or just quickly take a deep breath to calm yourself, this book is here for you to tell you that this too shall pass.
To you, who is lost in the world of complicated adults, there is no treasure map or a perfect guide to navigating your life. It’s hard not to make mistakes or let yourself down, even so, it’s okay to wind down from time to time. Our problems don’t resolve themselves overnight. Sometimes, you just need to take a deep breath, a warm fuzzy blanket, and a clear mind. When you wake up, you’re ready to face the new day with a newfound growth to take away yesterday’s pain.
