Overview

It is a tragic reality of life, which man cannot escape or run from. Every person inhabiting this planet has the good fortune of enjoying and sharing this environment on an even playing field. How we share and utilize this environment, is up to us. Despite our intelligence and the ability to rationalize logically, we adopt patterns of living, which result in our failure as human beings. Our failed existence, make us the victims of unpalatable, painful truths.We are the principal architects, who planned and designed the blue print for our undoing and downfall. The Mirror of Life presented its readers with vivid, graphic details of real life situations, in which victims faced ruin, disaster, pain, anguish, emotional turmoil and extreme remorse and regret.The inability of looking beyond your noses and assessing and evaluating future outcomes and consequences, accounted for much of the misery, disappointment and heart-ache. The misconception that money can buy you happiness and protect you from all adversities, was held up to ridicule and its false claim decimated, by the real-life stories presented by The Mirror. The mockery of this adage was paraded in shame, before its readers. Simple, common-sense living, uninfluenced by wealth or poverty, can protect and shield man against experiencing, the inevitable fate of coming face to face with such unpalatable, painful truths. Moderate and extreme lifestyles were juxtaposed to test the validity and outcome of choices available to mankind, in this Novella. Those who chose the extreme route were more vulnerable to pain and suffering. Those who embraced the moderate life style, while not totally free of such unpalatable, painful truths, were able to mitigate such consequences. They could, weather the storm and not drown in the cesspool of misery.These options are always available to mankind, but man’s inability to discern and make the right choices are questionable. Man’s indiscriminate and impulsive choices, account for the pain and sorrow, which he voluntarily accepts and drags alongside him, throughout his life.He alone can cut loose and break free from these self-imposed shackles. Love should never blind you to the reality staring you in the face.Seeing anomalies and denying their existence, can never be a sane solution and a recipe for healthy living. In our effort to shield and protect those we love, the truth is deliberately concealed.The irony is that those who protect and shield, are the ones most hurt by their caring, protective attitude. The greatest hurt and the most cruel cut emanates from man against man.Love and the expression of this emotion in its various manifestations, accounted for the severest pain and trauma to those dispensing it. Love, tempered with sobriety, can overcome the harsh backlash and accompanying misery. Love should be dispensed with controlled discretion. This golden rule should be observed, whether the recipient of this love is a child or an adult. The painful, unpalatable consequences of disregarding this golden rule, were clearly evident in the anecdotes, in which the characters Ben and Robin were presented by the Mirror of Life. Parading mischief and bad behavior as ‘cute,’ can be the worst parenting skill, which must be re-visited and revised. Man’s extreme, unchecked obsession, piloted by his insatiable greed and selfishness, can steer him into unchartered waters, from which there is no return. Even if he succeeds in escaping, he is scarred for life. The numerous real- life situations presented in this novella: The Mirror of Life: Unpalatable, Painful Truths Exposed, are a grim reminder to the discerning reader to live life with caution, avoiding the man-made traps and enticements, which can readily ensnare man. Thank you readers for your esteemed and highly respected company, in this edifying journey of self- discovery and redemption. May you never suffer the personal indignity of experiencing such unpalatable, painful truths o

A realistic reflection of our lives as lived by man in any era.Presented in a humorous, mock-serious style, but the message resonates with an undeniable truth, difficult to ignore.A must read for those desperately seeking real-life solutions and want to get out of the quagmire Strongly recommended for parents who are desirous of seeing changes in their children's attitude to life.
