What can I say about Phases???
What can I say about Phases????..... It helped me through the toughest experience of my life to date. The collection doesn't shy away from the realities of life, its raw in every aspect. It delivers emotion directly from the heart in all the themes explored and is a complete breath of fresh air to read something so meaningful and authentic which instantly connects with the reader. Certain experiences and people come into your life at times which completely changes who you are and how you feel, they take you away to a world which you didn't think existed, where contentment and pure genuine happiness co-exist and leave you with only one emotion......love. As with all things, this emotion along with others explored in the anthology are transient and change during different stages in your life but trying to describe what it feels like to have loved and lost and stay true to every single thought and feeling you endure along the way, hasn't been captured until Phases. I took comfort and reassurance from the anthology knowing that I wasn't alone, I wasn't the only person feeling these emotions, it's something everyone can relate to, can connect with and can understand and above all, it describes the REALITY not the sugar coated view of life. It raises questions which we've all contemplated but never dared to ask, it explores emotions which we often keep buried deep within us out of self pride and by breaking through this barrier into reality, makes the reader realise that feeling these emotions is natural and that we should embrace them and conquer them, not allow them to consume us. Phases instils this hope into the audience, although painful experiences can set us back in life and may be difficult to deal with.......someone has been through the same as you and come through the other side. It's not the end; it's just the end of a phase in your life.
Utterly captivating with every word!
Phases is a gift of insight into one's perspective on love, loss & hope.
This journey of raw emotion was completely unexpected.
At times light & witty, then dark and morbid...
...but each line always expressed so beautifully.
A talent hidden for so long needs to be shared and I assure you it's well worth the read.
Speechless, Confident, Hope...
Speechless, Confident, Hope, Positive are only a few of the vast list of emotions I experienced when reading Phases.
I had broken up with my ex girlfriend for 6 months before realising I am still not over her. The heartbreak left me negative, stressed, helpless, frustrated and lack of hope of finding myself again let alone another partner. During this time I read stories/books and watched youtube videos of how to move on and get me out of the negative spiral I was in, but they all lacked empathy and stated general facts about getting over someone, except one story which took me on a journey I will never forget.
A friend of mine recommended this book having helped his own break up; I was dubious but at this point I needed help and I saw the positive effects it had on him, and now I am grateful I can pass my own experience to others.
Phases is something I do not think anyone will encounter elsewhere as the content took me on several emotional journeys. It's a mix between a poem and a real life story and I felt it was able to empathise with everything I was going through which lacked in other books I read.
Throughout the whole experience it was teaching me how to conquer and control all of the most depressing times. I cannot explain how it did this and I do not feel the need to analyse how because after the journey I was given the answer and positive emotions I was looking for all this time, now I am happy.
I went from rags to riches both physically and emotionally, wearing my pj's all day, secluded, jobless and depressed, to working in the city with a suit, enjoying life with friends and meeting women I would never dreamed of talking to before.
At first I felt I needed to do this only to prove to my ex I can live without her, but after reading Phases I looked at life differently and this is where my whole life changed. I still needed to find a job and defeat my depression, but the difference is I no longer needed to prove this to my ex, I needed to prove it to myself and that is the moment Phases changed my life for the better.
I realised this is the start of me growing back to where I used to be, compared to all the other videos and stories I looked into, none of them gave me hope and that is why I have and always will recommend this to everyone, even if you have not experienced my sad state this will still change your life to become more positive than you may already be.
