It's Not Your Journey
By Rebecca Lombardo

It's Not Your Journey

"It's Not Your Journey" is presented as a book about personal experiences. There is much to be learned, but everyone's experience in coping with mental health challenges is different. We often make decisions that seem to be the best at the time, but in hindsight we can see that they were not the best for us or those around us. The experiences presented in this book offer us a perspective, and that perspective may be of great benefit to someone who is currently struggling with their health or identity.
