The present is only pointed into in small doses. Naturally, as memoirs delve into the past. In Truth Being Bondage we touch on present day. The most disheartening thing is I was in my mid 30’s when a repressed memory came back. A horrible memory it was, but it put so much into perspective. I found a whole new understanding of myself.


One simple question from a friend, that I would have normally blown off, helped this entire book writing journey unfold. My friend asked, “why are you still single.” I finally gave the question some thought, I went digging in my mind and I am so grateful. I only wish that I had done so sooner.


This excerpt is from the chapter, “Is It Me?”:

Women have been called out for dating a man’s potential. Consider me guilty of this. It is not just about what you want him to see and manifest. He must see that same potential as a reality within himself.

I decided to take on a self-examination. The question I can’t help but pose to myself, are these guys leaving something out when we break up? Am I being spared some painful truth to protect my feelings? The energy they give is as though they are standing in the way. Almost as if they were blocking the lane for my true mate to arrive. That could be the case.

We are still on schedule.

After receiving the physical proof copy there is a glaring correction needed for the back cover color font. Should you purchase early you may receive this rare copy. Currently, the passage on the back of the book is printed in my favorite color which is indigo. It shows up fine electronically but hardly readable in certain places without good lighting on the physical copy.


The front cover font shows very well. I made a correction to add that color to the back cover for a complete look.


Here is the Truth Being Bondage: A Memoir, back cover passage:

I could not give you what you wanted. I was not completely whole at the time. The issue was far bigger than you and I.

Imagine constantly tripping over a foundation crack that existed as long as you have been alive. After all, it is your foundation. Truth Being Bondage is a memoir based on the uncovering of a repressed memory and how it impacted life from childhood to adulthood. Let’s explore family dynamics between mother, father and everyone in between. Sometimes it is the adults who want to play make believe.

What can come of dredging up our past? Hopefully, a gem of information. It only takes one event to throw everything off course. There was trauma and a brokenness that went unaddressed, ignored and contained as if it did not exist. It had no time or place to heal.

In life, you can be considered difficult when you ask too many questions. Down this path, I explore my thoughts and actions at the time. Let’s go there and shine a light on the dark areas where our sensibilities may lack.
