. . . this book is for you. It’s to tell you things I wish my sister and I had known when we were young.
It’s a pre-self-help book, designed to help you to not become anxious in the first place. It’s to help you develop the feeling that whatever happens in life, you will handle it. Then, when the bad times happen, you will be ready for them.
In a way, it’s about ‘building ourselves a person’, so that we can become self-confident, resilient, and less anxious.
I wrote it for my long-dead sister Jane. I wrote it for you. And, in writing it, I discovered I was also writing it for me.
I hope you benefit from it.
‘We are all in the same boat, in this stormy sea, and we owe each other a terrible loyalty.’
G. K. Chesterton.
