Leo seems to be a cheery successful man. He has risen to a senior management level in his career at a young age, has a happy family life and hobbies. What people don’t know is the darkness that torments him every day underneath it all.This is a chronological collection of traumatic memories from Leo’s young to middle-aged life in north east Scotland. At the end of each section, Leo writes a letter to himself at that time with the intent of helping himself look at things differently. He also provides key reflections and lessons learned that are applicable to anyone in similar situations. Please note that these situations and memories may be distressing for some.Not intended as a self-help book per se but instead a light in the tunnel for those in darkness themselves. Showing that you are not alone, others have been there too and providing some words of perspective in the letters. A great source of inspiration for anyone looking to perform a similar exercise themselves or are looking to learn life lessons from others and prevent them making the same mistakes.Also an ideal text for students, councillors, GPs and mental health professionals looking for real life examples of patient problems.
