In this series of interrelated personal essays, I explore how relationships with certain family members and friends have helped form my life. Through the lives of those profiled here, I believe readers will get a better glimpse into the troubles I’ve been through in my own life. The many parallels I have with the lives of these family members and friends show that they have endured comparable situations or have even been through many of the same problems that I’ve had to withstand. By first seeing how these important individuals shaped my life, readers will get a better understanding of the personal pitfalls that are described later on.
