I am writing this review about 'You're Not the Boss of Me", written by Alma C. Lightbody. Alma is my sister - when she told me that her book was about 'Discovering Your Authentic Self' - I told her "I know who I am, I don't to read that book." Well let me tell you I was in for a few surprises. First of all it is one thing to read a self-help book written by a stranger, it is quite another to read about experiences in your own family. After I read Alma's description about our family relationships: loving, kind, laughter, parents always there for us. This was the imprint of family life my sister and I grew up with. So, it was very shocking when we both went through difficult divorces and discovered there was a different world out there. After reading Alma's book a whole new revelation hit me. I was never meant to be the happy housewife wearing an apron and greeting her husband at the door. I had to be tough and sometimes ruthless to raise three children on my own struggling to make ends meet.
I began to appreciate that my children were raised in an entirely different way than I was and that it was OK. A realization that hit me hard after thirty years of feeling guilty. Alma's book helped me to know that I did what I could and I am what I am. My philosophy in life is to be kind to my children and grandchildren and to share my sense of humour inherited from my father, I used to pretend I didn't like Country music and now I sing it at the top of my lungs! Thanks Alma, as always you have helped me along my journey. Love Dar
