In times of personal hardships and struggles, it’s easy to turn to vices or blame others for your woes. One author suggests seeking solace elsewhere: within yourself.
As a teenager, Kristine Fredheim’s father committed suicide. She then had to deal with an alcoholic mother, a family falling apart and her own heartbreak.
Seeking comfort, Fredheim found how strong she was by relying on her own perseverance. By learning that the power of life comes from the heart, she was able to go from having nothing – no love, friends or money – to having everything: love, a family of her own and happiness.
Fredheim’s new memoir Behind My Face documents her journey through death, alcoholism, heartbreak, love, marriage and childbirth, all leading to her finding success, wealth and joy from within.
“I want to inspire people,” Fredheim said. “I want to tell people that it doesn’t matter where you came from or what happened to you – you can still have an amazing life. But you have to want it and turn it around yourself,”
An honest and inspiring story, Behind My Face exemplifies how strength and self-love truly prevail through perseverance.
