My Father used to tell me, “Life is going to kick you in your ass.” Just like that, every bit of bluntness you can imagine. We must first, develop an acquaintanceship with our pain, fears and problems. We need to get completely comfortable with what we find uncomfortable about ourselves and our journey. The embracing of these issues will eventually give us the callous mentality that’s a necessity when facing the painful bullshit life hurls our way.
I’m not really into audiobooks or e-books. There’s something about turning physical pages, and the smell of the pages that takes reading from an activity to an experience for me. But when a friend sent me a link to the audiobook for J. Prince’s new memoir on Apple Music, I decided to give it a spin.
I finished it twice in a week and a half.
