"Other people's actions can leave you picking up the pieces, years after they occur."

In Not My Own, Gail Steeves shares a raw perspective of what it's like to become one of the "other people." You know, those good people that bad things happen to. Gail Steeves is one of them. It all started with the shocking murder, suicide of her older brother in 1990. Life is short, and no one is immune from loss or tragedy. Even unexpected and tragic loss. Gail Steeves shares how to go on after tragedy and the importance of looking after your mental health.

Bad things do happen to good people, and I'm one of them. The struggles are very real. Life happens, and sometimes not in the way we choose.
