    You're stronger than you think you are

    The suggestion of the previous review is excellent -- read this book slowly. Or read it multiple times. People spend so much time trying to avoid the inevitable pain in life, and, like avoiding going to the doctor, it usually causes the pain to increase until you must face it. Pema Chodron explains how to go through pain instead of around it, then let it go.

    Read it! Live it!

    This book is for anyone who lives in fear and in pain. If you're a spiritual person, or one who tries to become more spiritual, this book will give you a lot to work on, enough to keep you busy until you die. I recommend reading the book slowly, while examining your life thus far as you read on. If you do the spiritual work described by the author, your life will be profoundly changed.
