Life presents each of us with a rich tapestry of joys and sorrows, successes and failures, hills and valleys. Perhaps you have recently encountered a hardship in your life. Maybe you are surrounded with the trappings of a "successful" life, yet deep down, you still feel unhappy. You might feel pulled in all directions by the demands associated with each of your roles in life (e.g. spouse, sibling, child, co-worker, friend, etc.) You may find yourself overspending, overeating, or engaging in other self-defeating habits. Being a human being is hard work. None of us are meant to travel the complex road of life by ourselves.
