disconnected-chapter 1

This book is about Megan’s journey and the tools she discovered in a pursuit for answers. If you are here, chances are you can find yourself somewhere in these pages. As you read this first chapter, Disconnected, be aware of the thoughts and emotions that bubble up and how you relate to what is being described.

There are many ways of saying the same thing. Megan felt:

  • Outside of life looking in
  • Disconnected to my life, like I left behind some part of myself
  • Almost thinking of that part of me as someone else

This is some of the opening language in this first chapter.

Personally, I always felt like something was wrong but never could quite say what. Megan’s ability to language what she was experiencing is what struck me right away. That never came easy for me but I am learning. I kept nodding, throughout the pages thinking, ‘Yes, I felt that way too.’

Putting language to something is POWERFUL.

Because I was an avid photographer growing up, I have many photo albums that document where, when and who I was with. Of course I remember that party, or do I? I realized much later in life that most of my life was one big photo album but no motion picture. I couldn’t remember what came before or after. It was a still life, with no one moving.
