Lucille went on to marry a man who made a good life for her and her children, but who left her empty inside. She took up drinking as a past time as the family moved from military base to military base. She and her husband, Phil, would get into alcohol fueled fights. This pattern went on for years until Lucille's mother started to suffer from poor health. It was around that time that Lucille began to reconnect with God. It was also around that time that she decided to go back to school. Despite her husband's resistance, Lucille enrolled in college and graduated four years later. In that four year span, her daughter faced health issues, she repaired her relationship with her father, she got divorced from Phil, and Shaquille's career rocketed withe the Los Angeles Lakers.
I put the book down thinking that O'Neal could have delved a bit more into the topics that she presented. The book was more a broad overview of her life and the challenges she faced over the course of five decades. Had she explored her feelings of inadequacy, religion, and marriage that she struggled with it could have been a guidepost for others wrestling with these issues in their own lives. While O'Neal's honest accounting of her life was a valiant effort , I couldn't help but to feel that she still held back a bit and that she is still in the process of personal growth.Read more ›
This book tells her story and shows the process she went through to change "From Mental Welfare to Mental Health". I think we can all relate to her story because she not only shares the facts of her life, she also open her heart in a very sincere way. Her story is very inspiring and gives insight into social, moral & cultural issues. One of the stories that really impacted me was the one she shares in chapter 6 about Rev. Hartsfield and how this spiritual leader has impacted her life until these day. You will have to read it to know what I mean.
I'm very glad I picked this book to review and I hope you get the chance to read it as well.
