Brian, this piece came about because I read a young writer’s post that was filled with anguish, pain, and confusion. Having been in a similar place myself, the advice of people I respect came to mind. Their words and guidance were of great help to me during a very dark time in my life, I thought I’d try to pay it forward and help bring a little clarity and balance to others. Thanks for your encouragement and kudos.
