I was motivated to write a book inspired by true events that I have experienced in my life. Working in the social work field I have learned that many people avoid discussing difficult situations experienced from a person’s past, such as myself. In this book, Because of Yesterday you will follow a middle aged woman to her first therapy session. With each therapy session she attends she learns to open up and express hidden emotions. The woman discuss topics such as child sexual abuse, religion, sexuality, domestic violence and love. As each session continues the woman is learning to emotionally grow. She is given a choice to learn how to forgive her past experiences in order to move forward in her life but will she have the courage to forgive?
